  • 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



  • Season the cutlets with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Put the flour in a small dish season with salt and pepper.
  • Place bread crumbs in another dish.
  • Put the eggs in a small bowl and beat lightly.
  • Dip the cutlets into the flour, then the eggs and finally into the bread crumbs, making sure to coat each side thouroughly.
  • 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.)
  • Once golden brown on each side, set on sheet pan lined with paper towel and a wire rack.
  • In medium sauce pan, heat the refried beans over medium heat until heated through

Chipotle Mayonnaise

  • 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

  • Cut the rolls in half horizontally. Place one or two teaspoons of refried beans on top and bottom of each roll.
  • Spread 1 teaspoon of the Chipotle Mayonnaise on top of refried beans, on top and bottom of each roll.
  • Place the avacado and tomato on bottom of roll, place pickled jalapenos on top side of roll,
  • 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.
  • I serve with Steak Style French Fries I make in my Ninja Air Fryer Oven XL
