Tlacoyos in the Market

While we're on the subject of food, these are called Tlacoyos and are delicious too. Unlike much of the Mexican fare they can be made without meat. They are patties of blue corn usually with cheese, beans, or chicharron inside. Chicharron is basically pork fat or gristle beaten into a pulp. They are common throughout Mexico city and you can buy them prepared in markets to take home and heat or right off the comal where they sprinkle them with toppings and salsa. We there are two markets near our apartment that appear weekly and they've always got these on the go. Usually the toppings are a dry, fresh cheese or nopales or a veggie I suspect is Kale, but I'm not totally sure. Many markets here are mobile and go to different neighborhoods on different days. They set up in the morning with tarps in case it rains and always have some food up for offer. You can get anything from a hot cob of corn to a full meal at a sitting area. The markets are quite a bit cheaper than the supermarkets and the quality is pretty good. At around 5 the whole thing starts to pack up and by 7 you'd never know anyone was there. Sometimes there are some mariachis or other musicians wandering. The markets are one of the cooler things about Mexico City and because it's so big, there's always a few nearby.
