Step 1 Trim the top of the jalapeños, make an incision lengthwise and remove the seeds and veins.
Step 2 Combine the cream cheese, breadcrumbs, oregano, black pepper and butter in a food processor and stuff the jalapeños with a teaspoon.
Step 3 Wrap each jalapeño with half a slice of bacon and assemble the skewers with wooden skewers.
Step 4 Heat a non-stick skillet and shallow fry the skewers until the bacon is golden brown and crispy. Serve while still warm.
Step 5 Pat dry with a paper towel and allow the fried gorditas to cool until manageable.
Step 6 Slit the gorditas with a knife and fill with minced onion, cilantro and Salsa Mexicana. Serve immediately.
