Authentic Mexican Tortas: Mexican Food From Paco’s Taqueria

Everybody loves Mexican food, and everyone loves a good, hearty sandwich. Unfortunately, at most restaurants, you have to choose one or the other. At Paco’s Taqueria, we say porque los no dos – why not both?

Our local Mexican restaurant serves up our own delicious twists on traditional tortas Mexicanas, better known as a Mexican sandwich. This renowned dish is a staple in the heart of Mexico, where our family torta recipe comes from. In our local scratch kitchens, we make authentic dishes from scratch, including a torta crafted with homemade bread and stuffed with south-of-the-border flavors.

Experience the essence of Puebla with our unique take on the torta, the original Mexican sandwich. Meticulously crafted with soft white bread, tortas are the south-of-the-border spin on the sandwich. Bite into layers of tender, grilled meat, fresh veggies, creamy mayo, and tangy sauces, all nestled within soft, toasted bread.

What is a Mexican Sandwich?

What is a torta? In our book, this Mexican sandwich is the unsung hero of Mexican cooking.

In Spanish, torta is a culinary term that loosely translates to cake. But depending on the cuisine and style of cooking, it can be used as a label for cakes, pies, flatbreads, sandwiches, or omelets. Whatever form it takes – it’s truly delicious!

Across Mexico, a torta sandwich is a staple. With fresh, soft white bread on the top half and bottom half and a middle overflowing with lawyers of tender grilled meat, tasty veggies, creamy and tangy sauces, and sometimes a dash of spice, this classic is easy to cook and even better to eat.

Popular tortas in Hispanic cultures include diverse names and flavors. One popular option for Mexican natives is the torta Ahogada. Called a drowned sandwich in English, it consists of a crispy bread roll filled with pork carnitas and red onions.
