Beef Asado
This is a good recipe. If you slice the beef thin and leave out the olives, bell pepers and potatoes you can use this as a filling for gorditas.

Good recipe, added one cup of mashed potatos to the masa or (boil one big potato). Adding the potato to it holds the masa together when you fry it or it can come out crumbly or brake up when you cut it in half.

Conchas (Mexican Sweet Bread)
Mine didn't turn out right. The stuff you put on time did though. My bread came out like rocks nearly. I gave it 3 stars becaues I think the recipe is off some what.
