TEMPT MY TUMMY TUESDAY


TORTA

A torta is a Mexican sandwich. This is easy and OH SO tasty. Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients:

oblong roll (take your pick....you can use a french bread, a hoagie roll...I like to get an artisan bread) - slice in half horizontally
chorizo (you can use soyrizo if you have something against the good stuff)
black beans
shredded chicken
toppings: tomato, lettuce, red onion, avocado, jalapeno, cilantro, cheese, lime wedge...whatever floats your boat

In a skillet, brown some chorizo. Once it is browned, add black beans that have been drained and rinse. Mash together until most of beans are mashed.

Take your bread and hollow out some of the extra bread on each slice. You don't want it TOO thin, but it helps that some of the bread is pulled out. On bottom slice, spread some bean mixture. Top with shredded chicken. I broil for a few minutes, at this point, to heat and crisp the bread a bit.

Then, just top with whatever strikes your fancy. If you use a large roll (like a baguette) slice into serving sizes. This is an excellent sandwich to take on a family picnic.
