Meet Your New Favorite Mexican Food: the Torta December 19, 2019

Meet Your New Favorite Mexican Food: the Torta, Chandler, Arizona

Mexican cuisine often features dishes with mouthwatering fillings stuffed inside an outer shell or tortilla. Tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and fajitas are just a few examples. A delicious, lesser-known menu item is the torta—or Mexican sandwich. Like the taco or the burrito, these delicacies are served at many Mexican restaurants and taco shops. Fans of Mexican food and sandwiches alike will find many features to enjoy about this particular dish.

What Is a Torta? 

Loosely defined, a typical sandwich can be one or more fillings in between pieces or slices of bread and eaten with the hands. For a sandwich to be specifically labeled a torta, the flavor profile must be distinctly Mexican, with the bread a soft white roll known as bolillo or telera, and the contents plentiful.

Many Mexican food eateries put their own spin—often Americanized options—on their various torta selections. Everyone can find something about a torta to enjoy.

What’s the Inside Scoop on Tortas?

mexican foodLike street style tacos, tortas are the perfect handheld food for people on-the-go. However, they may often be big, depending on the complexity of the ingredients between the bread.

The sandwiches typically contain a succulent meat such as pork, beef, chorizo, or chicken. Then, tortas are usually encased in the buttered roll and layered with refried beans, lettuce, tomato, cheese, avocado, and pickled jalapeños or another pepper. Each layer enhances the flavors of the others making a delicious and irresistible combination.
