Specialty Dishes: Adovada Turnover

When Tito Gonzales opened this family-owned joint three generations ago, he set out to create a dish that blended the bold flavors of his Mexican heritage with the Italian cuisine he loved. And so the Carne Adovada Turnover was born. For this dish, pork shoulder meat is marinated in a fiery Hatch red chile blend and roasted until tender. The juicy pork meat, along with Wisconsin cheddar, is then stuffed into a flour tortilla that’s sealed shut like a calzone and fried until irresistibly crisp.
