Tortas

This is a fun meal for kids and a different way to serve up Mexican goodness without a tortilla. In order to cram all the ingredients in you need to hollow out the bottom part of the roll--this is the part the kids find so fun. After they have picked out the soft insides of the crusty roll they can fill in the cavity with their choice of toppings (I have suggested some here, but you can choose your own). Have fun!


INGREDIENTS
- French crusty rolls, or Mexican bolillo rolls
- refried beans
- finely sliced seitan
- salsa
- diced tomatoes
- thinly sliced red onion
- guacamole, or diced avocado
- shredded vegan cheese
- vegan sour cream
- shredded lettuce

METHOD
1. Cut roll 2/3rds of the way up (which I really didn't do, so don't look at the picture) and hollow out the bottom. Put down a thick layer of refried beans, then top with seitan and toppings. Put on top of roll and enjoy!
