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! MORE + LESS -
