President Bush ate some panuchos on his visit to Mexico. "Panuchos" are not
in the revised OED (miserable on world food), but they should be now.
Panuchos (corn tortillas with beans and meat) are more Mexican (Yucatan) than
Tex-Mex, but they’re slowing arriving the in the United States. President
George Bush ate panuchos in a March 2007 visit to Mexico.

Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant on Geary serves panuchos on Monday night.
It may be on the specials insert or may not be on the menu at all, I don’t
remember. But many regular customers come specificly for that dish - my
husband is one of them. Sometimes he just start chanting “Panuchos, Panuchos,
Panuchos” and I know where we’ll be soon.
I haven’t had them at the source (in the Yucatan) but that’s where the
Bermejo family is from so I suspect they bear some resemblance to the original.

Thank you for the recommendation of Tommy’s! The reviews on the Web are
spotty, and it’s a *long* way from where I live, especially for a work night
(Mondays only for panuchos ), but it would be worth it if I’m up in the city for
some other event.
The panuchos I remember so fondly from Azul y Oro in Merida were two round
tostada chips pinched together all around the edge and stuffed with black
beans (kind of a Mexican version of round ravioli), topped with a slice of ripe
tomato, a few rings of sweet marinated red onion, and some chicken breast that
was moist and flavorful. It was absolutely divine, as evidenced by the fact
that I ate them 30 years ago and the memory is still fresh for me.

But in Mexico, Mr. Bush seems to have finally had his fill. Tony Snow, the
White House press secretary, opened the one full-fledged news briefing he gave
during the entire trip by explaining Mr. Bush’s lunch menu on Tuesday: “
Three panuchos: These are corn tortillas filled with refried beans — actually,
sort of layered, not ‘filled,’ your flat, round tortillas, not great, big
tortillas — with pork, turkey and roast chicken.”
_Wikipedia: Mérida, Yucatán_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mérida,_Yucatán)
Yucatecan food is its own unique style, different from the rest of Mexico in
many ways. It includes influences from the local Mayan culture, and
Caribbean, Mexican and European, and Middle Eastern cultures.
There are many regional dishes. Some of them are:
Salbutes and Panuchos. Salbutes are soft, cooked tortillas with lettuce,
tomato, turkey and avocado on top while panuchos are pretty much the same, with
the difference mainly in the crunchy tortilla with a spread of refried beans
inside the tortilla. Habanero peppers accompany most dishes, either in solid
or purée form, along with fresh limes and corn tortillas.

Subject: An enjoyable trip to the Cancun area (incl. Merida, Yucatan) (long)
VALLADOLID/DZITNUP: Valladolid is a town that probably has more to offer
than we availed of; we only used it as a convenient stopping point between
Cancun and Chichen Itza. On the main square is a restaurant area, comprising an
open-air courtyard seating area, surrounded by many small (and competing)
restaurants serving snacks and meals. Pick your favourite and have the
delicious “Panuchos” (an open-faced soft corn tortilla topped with chicken or pork,
onions, tomatoes, salsa).
29 April 1957, The Gleaner (Kingston, Jamaica), pg. 8, col. 7:
This corn dough is used for tortillas, enchiladas, garnaches, panades,
panuchos and many other Spanish foods in the same way as flour dough is used for
pies, rolls, etc.
10 March 1960, Newark (OH) Advocate, pg. 25, col. 3:
The panuchos (bean and meat pies with cornmeal crust) and roast suckling pig
are justly the pride of Yucatan.
29 October 1961, Pasadena (CA) Independent Star-Newws, pg. B5, col. 1:
We ordered panuchos to eat with them. They are based on tiny tortillas not
much bigger in diameter than a water glass. Refried beans, slivers of sliced
sweet onion and other savory bites are piled on top.
