Mulita at La Taquiza
| Yelp

Some like to describe mulitas as a smaller quesadilla. Others label mulitas as a Mexican version of a grilled cheese with meat. Mulitas are simple food, and all are not equal. Typically found on the menu at Los Angeles taco trucks or restaurants, a mulita deeply satisfies, especially when burned out on tacos.

The construction requires proper balance with a layer of marinated meat, and the right amount of Monterey Jack cheese, while carefully placed between a lightly griddled tortilla. After customizing the spice levels with hand made salsas, the right mulita will maintain its structure after one bite. Add homemade tortillas, with vats of pico de gallo, cilantro, grilled onions, and it’s elevated into meat, tortilla, and cheese heaven.
