  • Summary

    Tortas are a great way to spice up the standard sandwich. I love the Latin-flare that tortas provide and the flavors are incredible. Here’s my healthy twist on the standard torta.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded (I use leftover chicken from a rotisserie or roasted chicken)
    • 1 tsp chili powder
    • 1 tsp cumin powder
    • 2 cups salsa (you can make it from scratch or use a bottled salsa)
    • 2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
    • 2 radishes, sliced
    • 8 slices red onion
    • 4 slices Jarlsberg Lite cheese
    • 4 bolillos or French bread rolls (you can also use Colombo sliced sweet sandwich rolls)
