Mexican Torta with Refried Black Beans and Roasted Poblano Pepper – Video Recipe

Tortas are Mexican sandwiches. They generally have a base of refried beans, which can be topped with just about anything. In the video I’ll show you a version with avocado and a moderately picante roasted poblano pepper, with a simple cabbage slaw for some added crunch. In my cookbook I’ve got a breakfast variation with scrambled eggs that is a messy, delicious good time!

The avocado I use in the video is a very special Reed variety that I get in season from They are huge and buttery with a tiny little pit. (Of course a regular Hass will do if you don’t have the Reed.)

Oh, and I wanted to mention that I’ve updated my press clippings page to include all of the wonderful coverage, about the cookbook while I was on tour. I’m so grateful for all of the traditional media, bloggers and readers that have been helping to get the word out. If you want to eat a meatless meal, let’s make sure it is delicious!
