Recipe by quickandsimple

I worked in a Taco shop and learned how to make this. It is a great change from the traditional carne asada burrito.

I liked this. I was skeptical at first by the ingredients, but it came out ok. I added about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water instead of 1 tbls to pan to scrape up bits. I did slice the meat very thin and added 1/2 tsp minced garlic with the water. The rolls with mayonaise were nicely toasted. You should list the refried beans, guacamole and pico de gallo in the ingredients, since those are part of making the torta. I did not use the refried beans because I do not like them, but did use the guacamole and pico the gallo. Overall this was quick and simple!!
