Torta De Jamon – Better Than A Sandwich

torta-7

Just Like Chavo Del 8

If you grew up watching Chavo del 8 this is going to make a lot of sense. If you haven’t get ready for a simple but delicious Mexican version of a ham sandwich.

Ingredients

  • Bolillos (how ever many you plan on making)
  • Ham
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Avocado
  • Onion
  • Refried Beans
  • Queso Fresco
  • Mayonaise or crema

All Bolillos Are Not Equal

I recently discovered these bolillos from Artisana are the closest thing to the bolillos street vendors use in Mexico the other option would be sourdough bread but that’s not quite right for this.

Slather Those Frijoles On

Please don’t use canned beans. Always have a pot of cooked beans on the stove for occasions like this. To make them simply heat up a pan with some oil throw the cooked beans on there and smash them down with a spoon. It’s quite relaxing.

Begin The Stacking

After the beans and mayo begin to stack the ham, veggies and cheese on top. Odds are you will put too much in your torta. It happens.

Fit Everything Inside

Press everything together and take a bite to sample.

Destapa La Fanta

Pop open that glass bottle of Fanta and take this time to admire your torta. Slice it in half and share with someone you love.

  1. As a mexican, I can tell you that your torta isn’t complete if you don’t put some chiles jalapeños en rajas inside the torta, try it, you gonna love it even more 😉
