Mexican Chicken Torta Tip

Add more chili if you love spicy food and be sure that you will be choosing a fresh avocado and cilantro so that it would not ruin the taste of the Mexican Chicken Torta Recipe. If you want to add some different flavor you can also use grilled chicken and for sure the taste will perfectly blend with the chicken torta then partner it with your favorite refreshing fruit shake. No hesitation this is the best! And for sure if you are in a bad mood it will easily switch into good when you start eating this delicious and satisfying recipe.

Even if you’re not a sandwich person, you will still eat these sandwiches twice a week.  My sister, who usually does not like Citrus, gobbled these up.  There are so many flavors here, and the chicken was very moist.  We did not make the Salsa, but they were great without it.  I am glad to have a lot of the Poblano Cream left because it will make a sparkly vegetable dip for a dinner party later in the week.
