Mexican Hero Sandwiches

In Mexico, one answer to a quick meal is an amply stuffed hero-style sandwich called a torta. Vendors pack hollowed crusty rolls with refried beans, avocado, pickled chilies, tomato, shredded cabbage, and a choice of fillings ― from meat to eggs or cheese. They flip the packed sandwiches on hot griddles to toast, then serve them with salsa. For the home cook, it’s easier to toast the rolls first, then fill. All the ingredients you need are at the supermarket. Explore Mexican markets for the traditional rolls, cheeses, and canned chilies.
