Pork Tortas

Pork Tortas
(2 servings)


2 medium Fresh Jalapeno Chiles
1 medium Fresh Lime, juiced
2 Fresh Bolillo Rolls (see note)
2/3 cup Refried Beans
5 oz. Mexican Pulled Pork (see note)
2 small Fresh Tomatoes, sliced
4 oz. Cheddar Cheese, sliced
1/8 cup Fresh Cilantro Leaves
2 tbsp. Crème Fraiche (see note)


Cut chiles in half and remove seeds.  Slice halves in thin strips and place in a small bowl with half the lime juice.  Set aside until needed.  Slice rolls and remove some of the insides so slightly hollowed.  Spread half of beans on each bottom roll half.  Next divide pork and place on top of beans.  Top this with the sliced tomatoes and drained chile strips.  Place the cheese slices next and sprinkle the cilantro over the cheese.  Taking the tops, spread the crème fraiche on each and place on top of everything.  Eat the tortas whole, sliced or after grilling on a Panini grill.

Note:               A Bolillo is a Mexican bread roll.  You could use a Ciabatta roll, French or Italian bread in its place if none are available.

Note:               You could use any type of pulled pork or even sliced pork for this sandwich.

Note:               In place of crème fraiche, you could butter, mayonnaise, guacamole or even just smear avocado over the bread.
