    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    In Mexico, a torta is your basic sandwich. I made this one with lime-marinated pork plus the traditional refried beans, peppers and other toppings. A slice of Cheddar cheese tops it off perfectly. Or for a delicious change, follow the same basic procedure but use chicken breast, refried black beans and Monterey Jack cheese.

      To assemble torta: scoop out a little bread from inside of rolls so they're hollowed slightly.

      This is a great combination of flavors! I looked for Torta recipes after watching Rick Bayless on PBS! Instead of cooking the pork chops in this recipe, I made Country Pork Ribs -- Ole! (Crock Pot) and used the pork with cheddar cheese (not in the ingredient list), homemade refried black beans, sliced avocado, cilantro, and sweet & hot jalapeno slices. Served with sliced tomatoes, and Spicy Corncob ~ Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup!
