Tortilla Sandwiches (Sincronizadas)

Serve Sincronizadas with guacamole and salsa for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or as a snack.


  • 16 corn tortillas
  • 12 ounces asadero or mozzarella cheese
  • 8 slices ham


  1. Using half the cheese, sprinkle it equally on 8 tortillas. Place a piece of ham on each tortilla. Sprinkle on remaining cheese, and top with the remaining tortillas. Pin each sandwich together with 2 wooden picks.
  2. Meanwhile, heat about 1/2 inch oil in a skillet until a drop of water sputters instantly. Fry the sandwiches, 1 or 2 at a time, turning once, until the tortillas are just semi-crisp. They should not be crisp, but just chewy.
