Recipe by Robyns Cookin

My boyfriend became addicted to the tortas they served at a little taco stand by his old place in LA. I created this healthier version to satisfy his cravings at home. He loves them. Of course nothing truly compares to that awesome, authentic torta roll, but the rest of the ingredients are fairly authentic. The toasted whole wheat bread works just fine for long as all of our fixins are present, we're golden. :-) Prep time does not include marinating time.
