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.
- Bolillos (how ever many you plan on making)
- 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.
