A salbute is a puffed deep fried tortilla that is topped with chopped cabbage, pulled chicken or turkey, tomato, pickled red onion, avocado, and pickled jalapeño pepper. Salbutes originate from the Yucatán peninsula.
Salbutes are mostly sold in the evenings when parties of friends or family go out to eat. Salbutes are served at fast food restaurants called Panucherias which also serve Panuchos, Tostadas, Tortas, and Caldos. Salbutes are fried and topped to order and often served with soda drink.
