How to Make Tlacoyos, My Favorite Mexican Street Food Snack

Out of all the wonderful Mexican street foods, tlacoyos are probably my favorite. The thick oval-shaped masa patties griddled on a comal are a must-have every time I return home, no matter what. In Mexico, tlacoyos are cooked to order and then topped with a fresh salad of cactus paddle, cilantro, serrano chiles, and onion. In addition to the made-to-order tlacoyos you get at a street stall, many vendors also sell precooked ones in bundled bags. Your homemade tlacoyos can start with masa harina or the kind of fresh masa that you’d use to make tortillas.
