The Flight of the Bolinacho

Although Tijuana is already famous for Caesar salad, Clamato, and Tostilocos, a pitched battle over a newer introduction, the bolinacho, now appears to be over, with the city getting credit for introducing the concept to the United States. The bolinacho is a roll that is stuffed with cheese and pickled jalapeno peppers before it is baked. It can also contain rajas, or pickled onions, carrots, and jalapenos. Available in supermarkets through Baja and the rest of Mexico, it has joined the array of baked goods in grocery store delis throughout Southern
California.
