Chorizo Sandwich

Chorizo Sandwich Mexican Torta Style

Chorizo and avocado, it doesn’t come much more Mexican than that! And that’s what we’re going to make today, a good old classic Mexican chorizo sandwich in a torta style bread roll.

A quick word about chorizo. The Mexican variety differs from the Spanish in that it has chilli pepper and vinegar alongside its pork base.

Mexican chorizo is also made using fresh pork, while Spanish chorizo uses smoked pork.

You can of course use any type of chorizo you can get hold of, but it’s best to stick to one type, rather than mix them up.

How to Make a Chorizo Sandwich Mexican Torta Style

Cut the chorizo into small chunks ready for lightly frying in a medium hot pan. You’ll need around 3.5 oz or 100 grams for one large torta roll.

You don’t need to add any oil to the non stick pan as the chorizo contains plenty already.

Its just a matter of cooking for a minute or 2 until you see the oils released from the chorizo. This cookig process enhances the flavors.

While the chorizo is cooking in the pan, take one medium sized avocado and separate into fairy large chunks.

You don’t want to mash the avocado up too much here. Take a look at the prepared avocado in the picture above as a guide. Add a splash of fresh lime to taste.

Now its time to place the cooked chorizo onto your bread torta style roll and add some grated cheese of your choice sprinkled on top.

Place under the grill until the cheese has melted, then transfer onto a serving plate.

Spread the chunky avocado pieces onto the remaining half bread roll.

Now place the 2 halves togther to complete this delicious authentic Mexican sandwich.

Finally, cut the torta style roll in half and serve.
