Tortas are a popular lunch sandwich made from a crusty telera roll sliced in half and filled with seasoned meat, queso fresco, refried beans, avocado, salsa, and so much more.

Let’s get started!

Ingredients Needed

I recommended chopping the steak into bite-sized pieces so the filling doesn’t come out every time you take a bite.

*Quick Tip!*

- bread - steak - guacamole - beans - cheese - tomato - lettuce - seasonings - salsa

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the diced steak, onions, seasonings, and cook for 20 minutes.


Make the guacamole by adding the avocado, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt in a mixing bowl. Mash with a fork and stir until well combined.


Add a thin layer of butter to the inside of the telera bread and toast for a few minutes on a hot skillet until browned.


Layer all your ingredients and gently add the top half of the bread, serve, and enjoy!
