Step 1

Boil the chicken until fully cooked, allow it to cool and shred. Set aside.  

Step 2

In a mixing bowl, combine the masa flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, water, lard and salt. Incorporate the chicken and mix well.

Form 2-3-inch diameter balls and press them to form 1/2-inch-thick disks.

Step 4

Heat enough oil to fry the gorditas in a frying pan and fry in batches. Flip once when golden. 

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.
