This chicken and avocado torta sandwich recipe is a great departure from standard ‘South of the Border’ Mexican fare.
8 ounces grilled chicken breast, sliced
1 fully ripened avocado
1 cup shredded iceberg or romaine lettuce
1 tomato, sliced
2/3 cup mashed black beans
1/4 cup pickled jalapeño pepper slices
salt, ground black pepper and other spices to taste
Freshly baked long Sandwich Rolls
Cut lengthwise around middle of avocado; twist avocado to separate halves; strike pit with a knife
blade to remove; scoop out pulp with a spoon.
In a small bowl, mash avocado.
Spread mashed avocado on cut sides of rolls, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. On bottom halves, layer sliced chicken, lettuce, tomato, black beans and jalapeño pepper slices. Firmly press tops of rolls on tortas.
