Breakfast Torta With Bacon, Eggs, and Chipotle Guacamole

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Ham and eggs is a very common torta filling in Mexico, and for a good reason. The salty slices bring texture and loads of porkiness to the game, while the eggs help bulk it out. But you know what is crispier and more intense than ham? That's right. Bacon. More

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Shrimp maintain their juicy integrity even under an avalanche of toppings—no batter required. Plus I could cook them in a chipotle and tomato mixture, so the salsa was built right in. More

A Sandwich A Day: Chile Relleno Torta at Tacos Morelos

New York Paige Brocious Post a comment

We've already written about the tacos from Tacos Morelos, an awesome taco cart in the East Village that's little brother to a cart in Williamsburg and one in Queens, but they've got sandwiches as well. One of the selections was a chile relleno torta ($5). Overall it was a tasty sandwich--but this was a situation where the whole was greater than the sum of its parts. More
