Servings 6


  • 3 Roma Tomatoes diced
  • 1 Small White Onion diced
  • 1 Romaine Heart shredded
  • ½ bunch Cilantro chopped
  • 2 Limes quartered
  • 6 Bollio Rolls
  • 12 slices Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • Cooking Oil

For the Beans

  • 2 15oz can Refried Beans
  • 1 15oz can Pinto Beans drained
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder

For the Beef

  • 3 lb Skirt Steak, thin-sliced
  • 1 tbsp Tajin
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 2 tbsp Oil


  • Add beef ingredients to a gallon sized zippered bag. Seal up and swish around to evenly coat all sides of the beef. Let rest for at least 15 minutes (up to overnight, the refrigerator).
  • Preheat oven to 450degF.
  • Add bean ingredients to a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir to combine and let cook together, stirring regularly until ready to build the tortas.
  • In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add pieces of beef and cook on each side for 3-5 minutes (may need to cook in batches). Remove to a cutting board and let rest for at least 5 minutes before chopping up.
  • Split the rolls and line out on a baking sheet. Spray the inside lightly with cooking spray. Place in oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and place 2 slices of cheese on each roll and place back into oven for 5-7 minutes more (until melted).
  • Build the torta - add a large spoonful of beans over melted cheese. Then add a portion of steak. Next add lettuce, onion, tomato and cilantro. Squeeze quarter lime over top.
