This was so good that DH ate his torta and half of mine. I made some small changes, such as using rotisserie chicken and guacamole instead of chicken breasts and avocado because they were on hand (and the rotisserie was only 3.99!!) I shredded the rotisserie and arranged it on the bolillo rolls, then covered it with small slices of pepperjack (had a block on hand, no slices). I toasted them in the oven, then added the mayo, guac, tomatoes after they came out of the oven. I served slices of queso fresco and pickled serrano peppers and carrots on the side. Also had Mexican Street Corn with this, which of course was too much food, but we both have big smiles on our faces. :D Muchas gracias por la receta!
