TJ Street Food with a Twist: Mulita de Asada

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Flatout and Society Culinaria.


There isn’t anything in the world I crave more than Tijuana street food! From tostilocos, diablitos, tacos al vapor, and of course mulitas de asada, I can’t ever find enough time to eat my favorites when I visit TJ! Lucky for me, I’ve learned to make my favorite street foods with what I have to feed my cravings and lately, mulitas have been on my mind! 

I was 9 years old when I had my first mulita in Tijuana and it’s been a favorite ever since! It’s not quite a taco and not quite a quesadilla but somewhere in the middle and just as delicious! I like to try new things so I made dinner for the family using Flatout bread FoldIt and man did the family love these versions of my favorite street food! 

I’ve been making Mulitas de asada on a Flatout FoldIt for lunch every chance I get! YASSSS they’re that good and so easy to make! Here’s what you need to make a Mulita de Asada on a Flatout FoldIt:

Now I didn’t know if it would work out the first time I mean a flatbread vs a tortilla come on! BUT man was I happily surprised! This mulita was softer, stayed warmer longer, and helped keep all my toppings in. 


Flatout FoldIt was easy to heat on my comal and the cheesy goodness I layered was waiting to ooze out! 

Here’s a quick look of how I assemble my mulita. Of course, you can add anything you would to a taco in your mulita too!

Are you craving this street food now? You should! Try them with Flatout Foldit bread It really is a healthier choice and a great alternative to tortillas, in my opinion! They’re low in fat, have a good source of fiber and the variety of Flatout bread make the possibilities endless.
