    babygirl65's Note:

    Tortas are kind of like a sub sandwich and served alot in South Texas. We use a bread called Bollios. It will not let me add Bollios to the ingredients so you will need 8 of them, 4" in length.

    1. 1
      First, split bollios in half, lengthwise.
    2. 2
      Spread mayo on the top halves. (you don't have to use mayo if you don't want to).

      Spread beans on the bottom halves of bollios.
    4. 4
      Top the beans with Pico de Gallo, avocado slices, tomato slices and lettuce. If you want to add cheese you can, personal preference.

      Evenly layer fajitas on top of vegetables.
    6. 6
      Cover with top half of bollio, press down and secure with toothpicks.
