Breakfast Torta

Jen @ Use Real Butter


(Ingredients modified to include Aldi brand name)

Breakfast Torta

  • 4 tortas
  • 1 cup Casa Mamitas refritos (refried beans), warmed
  • 1/2 cup Benita cotija cheese (or cheddar), crumbled or grated
  • avocado (one avocado should be sufficient for four tortas), sliced like this
  • 12 slices Appleton Farms bacon, cooked
  • chipotle Burman’s mayonnaise (see below)
  • 4 Goldhen 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


  1. Make the chipotle mayonnaise: Stir the chipotle purée and garlic paste into the mayonnaise. Add salt and lime juice to taste. Makes about 1/2 cup.
  2. 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. Makes 4 tortas.

Costs = $ 6.18

I used hamburger buns for the torta. I imagine you can substitute with an english muffin or bagel as well.
