1Mix the flour and cornmeal, the yeast and half a tablespoon of salt.
2Add the shortening and water to the mix. Stir it until you get a consistent dough.
3Divide the dough into 12 portions and form circles with them. You can use a manual tortilla machine to form the circles more easily.
4Put enough oil in a pan to dip your gorditas.
5Heat the pan over medium heat.
6Cook and fry each of the gorditas on both sides until they are well browned.
7Place each gordita into a dish with napkins to remove the excess fat.
8Use a knife to open the gorditas by the edge.
9Fill each gordita with your favorite Mexican stew.
10You can accompany each gordita with grated cheese or ground cheese.
