DIRECTIONS

  • start by making the salsa fresca; combine all salsa ingredients & chill for an hour.
  • about 20 minutes before you're ready to cook the meat combine guacamole ingredients with a electric mixer until smooth. i'd suggest bring out the salsa now & hav some tortilla chips for dipping while waiting for the rest of the meal.
  • turn oven on 250 for toasting.
  • heat beans on med-low until hot.
  • in a large skillet or on a bbq cook steaks until light brown on the outside & still slightly pink in the middle -- carne asada should not be dark brown & charred.
  • once done let sit for 5 minutes.
  • while the meat is resting slice bolillos in half & toast for 4 minutes.
  • cut carne asada into small pieces or strips.
  • spread one half of the bolillos with guacamole.
  • spread the other half with hot beans.
  • sprinkle cheese on beans, if using, & top with carne asada, lettuce, salsa fresca & hot sauce, if using.
  • close sandwich, press down & cut in half.
  • serve with extra salsa & guacamole (if there's any left still!).
