The Technique

Pueblan Cemita Torta

Pueblan Cemita Tortas are a classic Mexican sandwich that may be prepared with chicken or Mexican Beef Milanesa. The ingredients are layered on a soft, traditional cemita roll most commonly topped with sesame seeds. The torta originated in Puebla, Mexico & is known to specifically include chipotle peppers in adobo, avocado, cheese & papalo, an herb with characteristics similar to cilantro. The sandwich may often be referred to simply as Cemita Poblana. Learn how to make this wonderful, classic torta in your very own kitchen.

How To Prep & Use Chipotle Peppers 

Wearing a pair of disposable gloves is highly recommended when prepping any hot peppers including chipotle peppers in adobo as the flesh, seeds & oils will irritate the skin which may translate to a tingling sensation on the tips of your fingers without them. Always keep a box handy in the kitchen to use for a variety of cooking tasks.

Chipotle peppers may be purchased in cans or jars. Once open, remove a pepper or two with the gloves on, place them on a cutting board, then finely mince them. Next, measure the amount needed for recipe applications. They are tasty when included in hummus, pimiento cheese & aioli but offer good flavor to a variety of classic Mexican tortas. Be certain to stir in a bit of the adobo sauce, too. Transfer any remaining peppers from the can into a plastic container with a tight fitting lid. Store in the refrigerator up to two months.
