Torta de Asada

Torta De Asada

Torta is literally a Mexican sandwich and it’s loaded with all the goodies. It’s usually served on a soft roll.  The prep is what takes longer to do. It’s all worth the effort!

Length of time from start to finish: 1 hour

Difficulty: Easy


  • 2 lbs thinly sliced chuck roast (in the Mexican market it’s called diesmillo)
  • 1 steak tomato
  • 1 romaine lettuce head
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 1/4 cup crema mexicana (sub sour cream)
  • 1/4 lb queso fresco
  • 1 large avocado
  • Small jar Pickled jalapeños
  • 4 teleras (soft roll)
  • 1/2 can od refried beans


-Start off by slicing all your veggies, slice them as thin as you can. The tomato’s you want then into rounds.

-Then once your veggies are prepped, place them in the refrigerator, after season the meat with your favorite carne asada seasoning, I like to use Spanglish asadero all-purpose seasoning.

-Then grill the meat for about 2 min per side then remove. Toast the telera, then it’s time to build.

-Add a layer of refried beans, followed by the meat, then lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapeños, queso fresco, then crema Mexicana.

You can do this on a skillet if you like. You can also use any other cut of beef, just have it thinly sliced by your butcher, Or you can chop it with a cleaver if it’s a thicker cut of beef, into bite-size pieces.
