Since food has always been something that brought everyone in our family together, it’s no wonder that one of the childhood memories that stands out most to me was my after-school snacks. I used to come home from school starving after whatever sports I was playing that year, hoping my mom or babysitter had prepared me something tasty in the kitchen. Often times it was sandwiches, made with some sort of leftover protein from dinner the night before. This is what brought me to the idea of a torta as a fun after school snack recipe.

A torta is a Mexican sandwich, often served on a crispy roll of some sort, and served hot or cold. I love the idea of using whatever protein you have left over from the night before, chicken, carnitas, steak, etc., or cooking up something fresh, and building a tasty sandwich as a snack. The other beauty of this sandwich is that you can spread just about anything on it – refried beans, guacamole, a cream sauce, fresh or sautéed veggies, the possibilities are endless!

So, next time you are looking for a nutritious after school snack, look no further than this torta recipe. It is so simple to make, and the flavors are out of this world!
