You may or may not have noticed that Strange Roots has been on a bit of a hiatus lately. A lot has been going on from ending old jobs, starting new jobs, and getting involved with new organizations. A lot of new and exciting things are changes up this summer and with them a lot of new and exciting content.

With all of these changes one things has stayed constant: my love of sandwiches. My love of tacos still reigns supreme but with all the working and running around I've been doing my life had been full of sandwiches lately. I'm not going to pretend like I've been packing a torta for my lunch everyday, but with it's combination of my two loves it seemed like the perfect recipe to come back from my hiatus with.



  • 1 crusty boy (aka a Bolillo or sandwich roll)
  • Refried Beans
  • Carne Asada (one day this will link to a recipe for carne asada, but today is not that day)
  • Red Onion
  • 1 spicy boy (I use fresh jalapenos but I understand that some of you are weak)
  • 1 Avocado (your only going to use half for the sandwich but who just has half an avocado lying around)
  • Cotija

Start with your roll. Similar to a baguette because who doesn't love a little french colonialism for lunch. 

You could just lump it all on there, but where is the art in that. We are looking to make a sandwich that is evenly delicious with every bite. 

Layer 1: The Refried Beans
Forget ketchup and mayo, refried beans are my favorite condiment. It's a much better coagulate  tbh
Layer 2: The Meat
Deli meat is for the weak (kidding I eat it all the time). 
Layer 3: The Onion
Spicy boy level 1. Many people will tell you to pickle these. Those are people who actual enjoy vinegar.
Layer 4: The Heat
Spicy bpy level 2
Layer 5: The Cheese
Cheesus Christ it's about time to but some dairy on this sandwich!
Layer 6: Avocado
Mash it in there real good. Or don't it's whatever.
