Meanwhile, heat a comal or a skillet. Melt a little butter on it. Add bread, sliced side down until nice & toasty. Sprinkle queso fresco over the top & let it get a little melty. Place half a bun over filling to measure and "cut" around with a spatula. Add more yummies, such as sliced avocado, shredded lettuce, tomato, more cheese, crema, cilantro, salsa and a squeeze of lime! Now I sit back and enjoy a plate of my hubby's labors. Muy Ricos!

I'll just sit back and watch him cook.Wednesday, April 22, 2009
I love it when Mexichef heads into the kitchen and I sit back to watch! I'm only ever sure of one thing...it will be Mexican food. Okay, two things...it will be awesome. Tortas are one of our favorite things around here...use either Bolillo Bread or Telera Bread and your favorite fillings...and you have a tasty, portable (somewhat) meal. We definitley paper-plated this one! Mexichef is not very organized...when he cooks there are ingredients strewn all over, ALL OVER the kitchen. Most of the pots & pans are dirtied, and the counters need a good scrubbing. Oh well, it's worth it! Tortas con Todo (Tortas w/ everything) by mexichef This is more of a process than a recipe...this is the way he did it and the ingredients he used. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook some chorizo. Add thin sliced beef in the chorizo grease and fry it up. Once those are cooked, add sliced onion, jalepeno and cook down a bit. Place sliced ham over the top.
