Expert Tips

You can add fresh white cheese or a bit of sour cream if you like.

My memories of Mexican carne asada tortas are tied to the ham tortas that El Chavo del Ocho made famous through out the world. Before coming to California I never had the chance to try these delicious sandwiches. Today I will share with you my favorite torta recipe with grilled meat. It is served with tomato, lettuce, avocado, refried beans and mayonnaise, and then wrapped in a lightly toasted roll. To give it an authentic touch, don't forget to add thin slices of jalapeños. Enjoy and Viva Mexico!

When you buy the meat to grill pick out a thin cut like beef flank or skirt.

Directions

  • 1 Season the meat how you like it or purchase it already seasoned and ready to cook.
  • 2 Open the rolls and spread some mayo over the surface inside.
  • 3 Put the rolls over a griddle or grill and heat until lightly toasted.
  • 4 At the same time, grill the meat until it's cooked, but still tender.
  • 5 Remove the buns from the heat and spread some refried beans on them.
  • 6 Immediately add pieces of meat, then slices of avocado, some lettuce and then tomatoes.
  • 7 Add a few pieces of jalapeño to give it a spicy touch. Serve immediately.
