Touchdown Tortas with Chipotle Mayonnaise

onion soup recipeTortas are zesty Mexican sandwiches made with crusty, torpedo-shaped rolls called bolillos—but French or Italian rolls work equally well.

bullet043/4 cup mayonnaise
bullet041 tablespoon finely chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo
bullet041 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
bullet046 bolillos or other sandwich rolls
bullet043 tablespoons butter, softened
bullet041 1/2 cups refried beans, warm or at room temperature
bullet042 cups shredded cooked chicken
bullet041 Oso Sweet Onion, halved and thinly sliced
bullet041 1/2 cups shredded lettuce

To make the chipotle mayonnaise, mix the mayonnaise, chipotles, and lime juice until well blended.

Cut rolls in half lengthwise. Pull out some of the soft white centers to make space for filling. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons butter over the cut sides of each roll. Spread about 2 tablespoons refried beans on the bottom half of each. Top with 1/3 cup shredded chicken.

Spoon 2 tablespoons chipotle mayonnaise over chicken. Top with 1/6 of the Oso Sweet Onion slices and 1/4 cup lettuce. Cover with top halves of rolls and serve at once.

Yield: 6 servings
