Mexican Tortas and Sandwiches
Torta Ahogada (Drowned Sandwich)
True to its name, this torta recipe is drowning in a spicy chile sauce and piled high with pickled jalapenos and queso fresco. For the base of this mighty sandwich, we used citrus-infused carnitas and crispy bolillos.
Cola-Chipotle Pork Tortas
The next time you crave a mighty sandwich, try one of these cola-infused pork tortas. Adding cola to the pork gives it a lightly sweet flavor, while quick pickled onions offer just enough tang. For even more might, we added hefty slices of creamy avocado.
Torta de Albondigas (Mexican Meatball Subs)
When it comes to these Mexican sandwiches, we're not sure what we like better -- the garlicky, cumin-spiced meatballs or the refreshing cabbage slaw. Regardless, we're serving these fun meatball tortas at our next get-together.

Mini Mexican Tortas
Cute as can be, this chile-spiced torta recipe is the perfect starter for your next fiesta. Shredded pork flavored with chile peppers and cilantro offers a quick bite of bold Mexican flavor.
Tortas Hamburguesas (Mexican Hamburgers)
Take your burgers for a south-of-the-border trip with a few Mexican ingredients. Cilantro, lime juice, and onion mixed into the ground beef add bites of Southwestern flavor to this burger recipe. From there, it's all about the toppings. Try sliced avocado with our easy paprika sauce.
The first step to a delicious torta is a freshly baked bolillo. Bolillos are traditional Mexican rolls with a fluffy, soft inside and crispy outside that might make them your new favorite sandwich bread.
Fish Tortas with Mexican Cocktail Sauce
Adding jalapeno, cilantro, and lime to your favorite cocktail sauce is an easy way to infuse a taste of Mexico and jazz up your torta recipe. Drizzled over crispy fried tilapia, the sauce adds just enough zing to take these sandwiches over the top.
You won't be able to get enough of the hot-and-cool combo of guacamole and bold chorizo in this torta recipe. The crispy panini-style sandwiches get an extra dose of heat from sliced poblano peppers.
Mexican-Style Pot Roast Sandwiches
Bold flavors like pickled red onions, cumin, and cilantro add a Mexican-style twist to these slow cooker pulled pork sandwiches.
If you've mastered the Mexican torta, try our Italian version. The pie-style bake features a crispy crust that takes cues from bolillos. Just like a torta, the inside is packed with goodness -- in this case, chopped spinach, basil pesto, and three kinds of cheese.
Grilled Chicken Mole Sandwiches
Give your grilled chicken some glamour with the help of a rich mole sauce. The spicy chocolate mixture tastes oh, so good with the chicken's smoky grilled flavor and a lightly spicy avocado spread.
