Homemade Chorizo Tortas

May/June 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (8 votes)

A torta is the Mexican version of a panini—a pressed sandwich made with crusty bread that can have an endless array of fillings. For this one, we make our own chorizo-inspired filling by spicing up ground pork or turkey. Use a panini maker if you have one (and skip Step 4) or use our technique for making pressed sandwiches without any special equipment. Serve with a mixed green salad.

I didn't have chili powder so I substituted 1 tablespoon of chipotle chili powder. I also did not add cheese. I used ground turkey. Recipe may be better if followed as written, but I will not try it again.
