Mexican Torta with Carnitas

Pin It
Follow the recipe here to make the pork carnitas.  You'll slow cook the pork shoulder meat, then you'll crisp the outside. 

Torta is Spanish for the word sandwich.  Typically, the bread used is bolillo, which is oval, or telera, which is round.  I used a baguette because it's similar - crusty outside and soft inside.  The Vietnamese version of this is called banh mi, which also means sandwich.

You can spread some light mayo or some fat free sour cream on your bread.  Layer your meat on, and choose some more of your favorite Mexican toppings for your torta.  Guacamole, pico de gallo, cilantro, Mexican cheese are all great on a torta!
