Torta is everything and everything: in can be a cake or a pie (a tort!), a flatbread, and even an omelette. But here its one of the best foods around: sandwiches. Here we go all carne asada (steak) and peppers and onions, with a honey chipotle pesto mix on top. What is a torta? You're looking right at one.
