Mexican Sandwich(Tortas)

This Mexican-inspired sandwich is filled with flavorful puree of Black Beans, Mushrooms & Poblano Peppers , guacamole and drizzled with Chipotle Garlic Sauce, give this sandwich(tortas) a unique and delicious flavor profile that you and your family will love.

Traditionally, Mexican sandwiches are served on a on a soft roll called Bolillo(shorter baguette) but I have added my own twist here and using @stonefire Naan rounds and serving as a open face sandwich. These sandwiches can be served as an Appetizer to your next gathering. Just make beans and sauce ahead if time and just assemble right before the guest arrives.
