A Mexican dish from Oaxaca Mexico, a dish called Tlayuda. Generally made with a large thin and toasted crunchy tortilla, open faced, topped with shredded beef, pork, or chicken. And sometimes topped with refried beans, pork lard, lettuce and cabbage, and avocado, Oaxaca cheese and salsa. You can create your own Tlayuda at your house.
Open face sandwiches are common in American culture, like an open face ham and cheese without the top bread or bun, this Tlayuda is a perfect Mexican open face kinda sandwich in its own right. Creating one shouldn't be too hard, you can use ready made foods for this. Like a can of chili, just heat it up and put it on some toasted tortilla.
What kind of Tlayuda would I make? I'd make a ground beef Tlayuda, seasoned with taco mix and some garlic and onions, maybe some diced tomatoes, and some cheddar cheese and melt it in the oven, and top it with some mayonnaise mixed with some hot sauce.
To make it a platter I'd add some macaroni salad on the side, or some steak fries all seasoned favoring the Mexican culture. Or maybe mix the culture up and have some Ahi Poke Hawaiian style on the side, a little Mexican Hawaiian Tlyuda platter. What you think? Yea or Nay?
