I see a Ham Torta Sandwich in my future…. Everything about it rocks and comes together to do a little Mexican hat dance in my mouth! Yummy;) The image below is Taco Mix’s Torta Cubana. This monster of a torta contains refried beans, mayo, melted cheese, jalapeño peppers, lettuce and tomato, avocado, hot sauce, two slices of boiled ham, one split and grilled hot dog, some hand-carved shards of smoked ham, and, finally, a thin, lightly breaded Milanese-style beefsteak.
It seems to really pack a punch with it’s assortment of meats. I’m personally of the “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” school of idealogy. However, I think I will experiment with having smoked ham, boiled ham, bacon, and chicken for texture. I’ll let everyone know how it turns out, finger crossed for Mmmness.
Here’s a simplified recipe from a good friend’s mom!
Slice bolillo buns in half and spread with lime. Toast in skillet. Spread thin layer of refried beans on bun halves and toast again. Layer one half of bun with ham, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado slices and fresco cheese. Slap on top of bun and Ole’!!
*The best thing about this sandwich is it gives you the liberty
to play around and create something easy and delicious!*
Good Luck and Good Eating.
