El Lago is now the central Texas distributor of Charras.
What is a Charras? Is it a Tostada Shell? Is it a Chip?
Well yes is the answer. Charras are a fried or baked tortilla that can be used as a base for a Chalupa or if you put them out with salsa, they are chips!
Flavors, WOW, Jalapeno, Chapotle, and Regular Yellow Corn. The spice pops with just enough flavor to enhance your dish, not overwhelm it. Break one up over a salad and it makes for a crunchy flavorful experience. For the traditionalist we have Nopalitos or Cactus and Linseed oil shells. These are the true El Real Sabor Mexicano or Real flavor of Mexico.
For the healthy conscious we have a baked or Horneadas shells. These take the frying out of the product so that unnecessary oil is not added. They are a lighter tostada. We also have the Casera, a home like fried thicker tostada.
With all these Charras it is difficult to make a choice. I suggest take one type home a week until you find your favorite
