Tortas have always been a special treat for me. They remind me of my vacations and street excursions in Mexico looking for a tasty bite to eat. Tortas can be stuffed with just about anything, from carnitas to asada to just avocado. But I wasn’t blow away until I discovered that an entire serving of chilaquiles could be stuffed inside a warm bolillo. What’s better than that? Those spicy chilaquiles topped with Crema Mexicana and a generous sprinkle of queso fresco and queso cotija. I call it torta heaven.

Naturally, I had to recreate this heavenly torta at home. With just a few ingredients, I was able to take myself back to the streets of Mexico and enjoy a torta chilaquil in the comfort of my own kitchen. Today I share with you my recipe. You can also substitute red chilaquiles with green chilaquiles if you prefer. Don’t have time to create salsa from scratch? No worries! Use canned salsa. I won’t tell.
