The Ultimate Guide to Making the Perfect Torta: In a torta de asada, grilled beef, fresh vegetables, and creamy guacamole are all put together on soft bread to make a Mexican sandwich with strong flavours that you’ll love!

The main ingredient in the tasty Mexican sandwich called torta de asada is grilled beef slices, which are also known as carne asada. Before being grilled, the beef is usually seasoned with different spices to make it taste good and stay tender.

The Ultimate Guide to Making the Perfect Torta

In Mexican food, a torta is a type of sandwich that is very popular. Most of the time, bolillos or teleras rolls are used to make it. The bread is cut in half and filled with different tasty things. On top of a main meat, like ham, chorizo, or other types of meat, a torta usually has vegetables like avocado, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, and sometimes pickled jalapenos.

The name of the sandwich changes based on what’s inside it. A torta de jamon, for instance, is filled with gammon, while a torta de carne asada is filled with grilled steak that has been marinated.

What’s in it

  • For carne asada, you can use skirt steak, flank steak, or sirloin steak, among other cuts.
  • Traditional torta de asada is made with bolillos or teleras, which are flat bread loaves. You can use your favourite sandwich rolls if you need to.
  • Spreads: avocado mash or guacamole with a little mayonnaise.
  • Onions, white or red, fresh tomatoes, and shredded lettuce.
  • If you want to use cotija cheese instead of queso fresco, you can. If not, use the cheese you like best.
  • Chiles: Any torta de asada recipe needs pickled jalapenos, which are easy to find in small cans at most grocery stores or on Amazon.

How to Make a Texas-Style Tortilla

  • Make some carne asada. You can cook a batch right away or use leftovers that have been warmed up.
  • Cut the bolillo rolls in half with a knife that has serrated edges. Next, put a little mayo on the top half of the rolls and guacamole or mashed avocados on the bottom half.
  • On the bottom of each roll, put a small amount of carne asada. Gently press the meat into the guacamole to make it stick.
  • On top of the meat, put lettuce, tomato slices, onion, and pickled jalapeños. Add some fresh queso on top to finish.
  • Place the top half of each sandwich over the fillings and gently press to close.
  • You can serve the asada torta right away or pack it up to eat later. See below for how I suggest you pack this tasty torta sandwich!

Advice and Help

  • Marinate the beef slices for a few hours (four to six hours is best) before grilling for the best flavour. The time spent resting will give the meat a great flavour and help it get tender.
  • If you can’t find bolillo or telera rolls, pick a new kind of roll that has a crusty outside and a soft inside. When you put hearty meat inside a carne asada torta, this kind of bread holds up well.
  • Traditional toppings are tasty, but don’t be afraid to try something new! For a different taste, you can add grilled bell peppers, pickled onions, chilli peppers that have been sautéed, a fried egg, or chopped cilantro.
