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.
- 3⁄4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon chipotle chile in adobo, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 6 sandwich buns, bolillos
- 1 1⁄2 cups refried beans, warm
- 2 cups cooked chicken or 2 cups cooked pork, shredded cooked
- 1 large sweet onion, halved and thinly sliced
- 1 1⁄2 cups lettuce, shredded
