In the simplest sense, Garnachas are tortillas, topped with meat, marinated cabbage, salsa and grated cheese. Some form of this ubiquitous layered antojito is common in most countries across Mesoamerica including Guatamala and Belize. In Mexico, the popular street food originated in Oaxaca  is distinguished from memlas, huaraches, sopes, chalupas, and other laden tortilla snacks primarily by shape. The hand-made fried tortillas of garnachas are quiet small and round, while huaraches are sandal shaped, memelas are oval, sopes are cupped, and so on. Secondly, it is not a garnacha without the vinegary cabbage garnish known as repollo. Although enjoyed year around, these treats are the turkey leg equivalent of fair food in Mexico – gracing nearly every town’s harvest festival.
