A recipe for Carne Asada Torta. Carne Asada Torta recipe. Carne Asada Torta recipe with guacamole. Sometimes you just want a huge pile of carbs and delicious meat. Sometimes you don’t want to eat salads and steamed vegetables. Sometimes being bad (on your diet) is good. Sandwiches are one of my biggest vices. Carbs and meat together make a magical couple. I love tacos and burritos, but sometimes I want to sink my teeth into a fluffy cloud of bread instead of a tortilla. That is why I love tortas. If you guys are looking for a serious sandwich, I can say that this should be considered.
