Torta de Cochinita Pibil

What is a “Torta”?

Tortas are a Mexican traditional dish.  We could say is like a Mexican sandwich because  it's a fluffy bun, topped with anything you can imagine (in this case, Cochinita Pibil)

But, where do they come from?
Some people say Tortas were created during the French occupation of Mexico in the 1860s;  Mexican bakers took inspiration from the French baguette.

Ingredients:
-Bread (ciabatta or any other available bread)
-Cochinita Pibil from Asanté
-Mashed beans
-Sliced Purple onion with lime
-Habanero sauce

Directions:
-Open the bag of Asanté Plant-based Cochinita Pibil
-The filets are medium size we recommend that you chop them into thin strips
- Then pour them into a skillet on medium heat for 2 minutes
-Cut the bread by the middle
-Spread the mashed beans in the bread
-Fill the bread with the Cochinita Pibil
-Add the sliced Purple onion with lime
-For some extra flavor, add habanero sauce

ENJOY!
