An authentic Mexican equivalent to a grilled cheese sandwich.
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 4 sandwiches
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 slices good quality ham
  • 4 slices white or yellow cheddar, or cheese of your choice
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  1. Lay out four of the corn tortillas and top with a slice of ham and cheese and spread some salsa over it. Cover with a second tortilla.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and place the finished tortillas in it. Fry until the cheese is melted and the corn tortilla is lightly freckled with golden brown. Transfer to a warmed plate and repeat with the remaining sinchronizadas.
  3. Serve with guacamole.
