Gordita de chicharrones y queso

Last weekend I stopped at the Giovanni y Los Magos truck on the corner of Sebastopol and Dutton in Santa Rosa for a quick bite. I came here because I wanted a fresh tamale, but then I noticed that gorditas had been added to the menu and ordered that instead. After I paid, I took my cup of hot champurrado over to a seat at the picnic table under the overhang. I didn't mind the wait, as it meant that the gordita was being cooked to order and would not be a reheated shell. Yes, indeed, this had the lovely toasted corn fragrance, delicate crispness and soft interior of freshly griddled masa. Overflowing with crunchy, fatty chunks of chicharron, rubbery bits of fresh Mexican cheese, salsa, fresh chopped onions, and cilantro --- just the right thing to hit the spot.
