Tortillas de maiz con queso

A tortillas de maiz con queso is the best little bite of Ecuadorian street food. The dough is a paste of harina and water that the ladies roll into a small ball. They push a pinch of grated queso fresco into the middle and pat the whole thing into a small round about the size of their palm and fry it in bubbling lard until it's crispy and the cheese is melted. They're 3 for 50 cents and so smoking hot you have to wait until the grease soaks through the paper. That's when you know they're cool enough to eat. Ah-maz-ing.
