Spanish gordita

Noun[edit]

gordita (plural gorditas)

  1. A thick tortilla made in Mexico, frequently stuffed and made of corn flour

      Another element in this argument is how a "real" gordita is fixed. Is a gordita the tortilla itself, or is that just a shell, requiring toppings to make it a gordita? ... On the other hand, Taco Bell's gordita is a piece of wheat flatbread folded like a taco and stuffed, which bears little resemblence to the "real" thing, which would warrant its classification as appropriation, not a variation.

      The term gordita means “little fat tortilla” and all gorditas are made from masa, but what you are served when you order a gordita will vary depending on where you are in Mexico.
