dear pati, what oil did you brush the grill and tasjo with. you rock!
I used vegetable oil Kenny 😉
Saw this on pbs Cinco de mayo special today. Cant wait to make it next weekend for my family. Looks absolutely delicious. Love your show, its travel and the best food all in one and you are such a great happy positive great to watch host. After today, im adding Oaxaca to my travel plans.
So glad you will make this torta Tom, you guys are going to love it. And you are going to adore Oaxaca! Hopefully you can make it there soon 😉
Pati, this was an awesome sandwich! The smoky guacamole was exactly the right “zip” with the salty meat and mild beans. The only change I would make is to put the cheese on the bread while it is toasting, so it can melt. This is a real winner!
Yes Alice! Melted Oaxaca Cheese is always a good idea, yum 😉
What is Tasajo meat ?
It is dried, cured beef Linda. Here is the recipe for you https://patijinich.com/pati_2020/tasajo/
Paty gracias! Ésta receta está deliciosa estamos mi esposo y yo encantados con la preparación del tasajo! Ya queremos hacer kilos para tener siempre a la mano. De verdad muy agradecidos de que hagas esos recorridos por nuestra gastronomía y más aún de que compartas con nosotros éstas ricuras! We love you!
Mil gracias Lili! Que buena idea tener tasajo a la mano siempre. Un abrazo 😉
Hi Pati, I love your show so much! It brings my husband and I so much joy watching you. I was wondering, what is the best substitute for Oaxaca cheese?
Thanks Sara to you and your husband for tuning in! For this torta, I would substitute Oaxaca cheese with fresh Mozzarella, you can read a bit more about this here: https://patijinich.com/pati_2020/oaxaca_cheese/
Mucho gracias Pati – we are planning on making this today 🙂
I made this today. Yum, yum, yum!!! I made the bread using a new recipe for po-boy bread. I made the Smoky guacamole using ripe jalapeños from my garden. I’m sending this recipe to all of my friends that love good food. I’ll be making this again real soon. And figure out how to make a chicken version. Thanks Pati.
Your bread sounds yum, Nonna!
Mike loves Mexican food
Just made this yesterday and it is delicious!! The recipes for the Tasajo, refried beans, and smoky guacamole are now permanent go-to’s in my recipe box. My only failure was that I didn’t have bolillos or Oaxaca cheese so I substituted flour tortillas and mozzarella cheese which were the closest substitutes I had on hand. Even with these slight changes I was very happy, but will be getting to the market today to get the proper ingredients for the leftovers at lunch. Thanks Pati! Really enjoy your television show on PBS too!
That’s great that they are now your go-to recipes, Mike!
Made this tonight and it was wonderful! We will have it again.
