Torta de Milanesa

Mexican Beef Milanesa Sandwich

  • Braiser
  • 8 4 oz Beef Cutlets
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Plain Bread Crumbs
  • 2 Eggs (Beaten)
  • Vegetable Oil (for frying)
  • 8 Bolilo or Telera rolls
  • Chipoltle Mayonnaise (Recipe below)
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes (Sliced)
  • 2 Avacados (Sliced)
  • 1 Red Onion (Sliced thinly)
  • Pickled Jalapenos (Optional)
  • 1 Chipotle chile in adobo sauce (Diced)
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 Can Refried Pinto or Black beans (Heated til warm)

Chipotle Mayonnaise

  • 1 canned Chipotle chile in adobo sauce (Diced)
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • ¼ Cup Mayonnaise
  • Salt and Pepper (To taste)


  1. Season the cutlets with salt and pepper, to taste.

  2. Put the flour in a small dish season with salt and pepper.

  3. Place bread crumbs in another dish.

  4. Put the eggs in a small bowl and beat lightly.

  5. Dip the cutlets into the flour, then the eggs and finally into the bread crumbs, making sure to coat each side thouroughly.

  6. Heat oil in braiser or large skillet to 350°F. Fry the cutlets in batches as to not crowd the pan, until golden brown on each side. About 2-3 minutes each side, depending on thickness of course 😉 (I normally can fit 2- 3 pieces at a time in my braiser.)

  7. Once golden brown on each side, set on sheet pan lined with paper towel and a wire rack.

  8. In medium sauce pan, heat the refried beans over medium heat until heated through

Chipotle Mayonnaise

  1. In a small bowl mix together the diced chipotles and adobe with the mayonnaise, and half of a lime worth of lime juice, season with salt and pepper to taste.

To Assemble the Tortas

  1. Cut the rolls in half horizontally. Place one or two teaspoons of refried beans on top and bottom of each roll.

  2. Spread 1 teaspoon of the Chipotle Mayonnaise on top of refried beans, on top and bottom of each roll.

  3. Place the avacado and tomato on bottom of roll, place pickled jalapenos on top side of roll,

  4. Place the 1 cutlet on the bottom of each roll ( if they are smaller place 2 on each) Add slices of red onion and tomato slices. Place the tops of the rolls onto the bottoms.

  5. I serve with Steak Style French Fries I make in my Ninja Air Fryer Oven XL
