The Essential Guide To Classic Mexican Tortas is designed to cover many of the basic fundamentals that will aide in achieving accurate results. Specially prepared bread may be used to make tempting sandwiches & so much more. Just a few ingredients, tools, equipment, recipes formulas & proper technique will open the door to many classics. Be certain you’re on task in advance & stock up on items before beginning.

No. 1

The Ingredient Staples

A well stocked pantry & refrigerator is the first step to making sure building these irresistible tortas will be effortless. Eggs play a vital role when a breading is necessary for frying. It allows spices & seasonings to stick as well as the crumbs so a crisp exterior may be achieved. A small amount of vegetable oil will complete the process. A few different cuts of meat will also be highlighted in these classic Mexican tortas. I’ll feature them individually & share pointers for cooking them just so. Fresh produce, pickled jalapeños, signature cheeses & simple condiments will round out the list of ingredients aside from the homemade bread styles.

The Tools & Equipment

Good cutting boards & a variety of knives are always appreciated when preparing sandwiches. Make certain a chef, paring & bread knife are handy. A small & a large non-stick skillet as well as a rubber spatula will also prove useful, however a stainless steel large sauté pan is ideal for frying items in a small amount of fat. Have several pairs of tongs available & a wire rack, too. For toasting the homemade split bread, the broiler element takes care of the task quickly so have a half sheet pan available. 

No. 3

The Logistics

Many of the sandwiches I’ll be sharing may be prepared in stages. Each one will be made on a signature bread style ranging from Buttermilk Telera Rolls to Buttermilk Bolillo & Buttermilk Cemita. Freezing the homemade bread, then removing what is needed as a moments notice is a good option. Place cooled rolls in bags & store up to one month. Thaw quickly in the microwave or allow to stand at room temperature in the bags an hour or so. Let individual recipes guide you in determining other methods for holding breads.
