1. Food
Tortas_Chicken_Breast_pg_4-6.jpg Due to the French influence in the early 1800's, bread made from flour became a Mexican staple. Bakeries or "Panaderias" became commonplace and hundreds of different varieties of breads are now available. While some breads are named for the flavor or flour (potato bread, wheat bread, sweet Hawaiian bread etc.,) the types of breads in Mexico are usually named for the shape, such as conchas (shells) or piedres (stones.) Try this simple recipe for Bolillos, a crusty french bread perfect for making a torta. When the bread is fresh out of the oven, slice it open and fill with your favorite meats and veggies. Bolillos also make great dinner rolls and would be a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner table.

Tortas are the bomb specially the breaded milanesa with avocados,diced cabbage,tomatoes,chile in rajas,melted(fundido)cheese,and the buns toasted in a comal with a little butter. Yeah not your diet meal but heaven on earth to eat. Arriba Chihuahua cabrones…

Love tortas! Best torta ever was at 1 a.m. at the side of the highway deep in the middle of nowhere in Mexico, near a big rig nap area. A lady had a tiny stove in a tiny pop-up, with one small table and chair. It was a fricken gourmet torta!

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers
and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
