    Similar to sopes or huaraches, memlas are grilled thin masa cakes topped with beans, salsa, cabbage, guacamole and cheese. The toppings vary from recipe to recipe and its a good recipe to improvise using your favorites.

      This is an easy and delicious recipe. I had some as is, some with lettuce, and some with some avocados. I will do this again and I think I will as well with some refried beans as I think it would be prefect with that and some with avocados or guacamole. The only thing I changed is that I flattened them with a tortilla press to cut down on the work and time needed to make them. Thanks! Made for ZWT 8.
