Grilled Steak Huaraches - Hispanic Kitchen..."Mexican huaraches are oval in shape to resemble a Mexican leather sandal, called huaraches. I owned many pairs as a kid, but these are much more tasty, LOL! If you love homemade corn tortillas, you will love huaraches. It's a thicker version with a crispy texture on the outside, but soft on the inside. And just like tortillas, you can top them with anything."
