  • 4 eggs, cooked to your liking
  • _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
  • chipotle mayonnaise:
  • 2 tbsps chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, puréed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced and crushed into a paste
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • salt to taste
  • fresh lime juice to taste


Stir the chipotle purée and garlic paste into the mayonnaise. Add salt and lime juice to taste. Makes about 1/2 cup.

Slice the torta(s) in half. Toast the bread if desired. Spread a quarter cup of refritos on one half of the torta. Sprinkle cotija cheese over the refritos. Layer 3-4 slices of avocado over the cheese. Place a few slices of bacon on the avocado. Squeeze or spread the chipotle mayonnaise on the bacon. Top with a fried egg or scrambled egg sheet (just like scrambled eggs, except you let it cook in a sheet like a pancake). Place the other half of the torta on top and serve hot.
