Enchiladas cooked on a disc (disco en spanish)

Thank you for the name and recommendations. I have been dreaming of these enchiladas! And yes, I agree, it is an experience. My family is from Patzcuaro and it has been too long since I've been.

Enchiladas cooked on a disc (disco en spanish)


I am looking for a place that cooks food, specifically enchiladas, on an outdoor disc. The enchiladas are usually made by dipping the tortilla in guajillo sauce and then light fried on the side of a large round disc (think an upside down ufo). Making these enchiladas indoors is a mess which is why the disco is so helpful.

Enchiladas are usually filled with a potato mix and folded in half, not rolled, and topped with cabbage, queso, crema, salsa, and jalapenos with a side order of fried chicken (not breaded). Usually chicken or fried tacos are being cooked in the middle of the disco which has oil in the center, similarly to a wok but much more flatter, as they are ordered.

I had these in Patzcuaro, Michoacan and in my mom's comadres back yards back home. I am dying for some of these enchiladas, pollo, and tacos! Help me find them!
