Could not find the chipotles in my crowded freezer, so used about 1/4 teaspoon of ground chipotle powder. Of course a torta would not be a torta without pickled jalapeno peppers & sliced avocado! With those additions it was the perfect messy sandwich.

I never had a torta before, so I didn't know what to expect. DH remembers these from his childhood and said it tasted authentic. I warmed the beans, bolillos, and the cooked chicken for a nice warm sandwich for supper. We both really enjoyed these, and also enjoyed them cold the next day in our brown bag work lunches.

Ricas! These made a wonderful dinner but I could see them being enjoyed by a bunch of football fans watching a big game! They are very hearty. It is a must to make the chipotle mayo- it adds so much to the recipe. I used poached chicken and I never make a torta without avocado :). You'll enjoy this one!
