    Chef #928625's Note:

    Even though some would consider gorditas a snack food,these are very rich,especially if served with salsa negra,and make a very satisfying meal.These are good topped with a fried egg,tooThis is a recipe that's best made with friends-someone else can press out the disks while you fry them saving a lot of trouble.It's a little trickier ,but you can still make these if you are cooking alone(I did).The gorditas and salsa negra are Rick Bayless recipes,the additional garnishes my own touch.
