Take a bite of these amazing Mushroom and Refried Bean Tortas ... they're packed with flavor and simple to make!
Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
Remove pan from heat. Season to taste with salt and stir in cilantro. Set aside.
While mushrooms are cooking, heat 1 teaspoon olive in a small frying pan over medium heat.
Stir refried beans, chopped chipotle pepper, and 2 teaspoons adobo sauce (from chipotle pepper can) into the garlic.
Cut baguette into 6 equal pieces, if using. Slice baguette or rolls in half and remove a little bread from inside each piece.
Top beans with mushrooms. Then cover mushrooms and the top half of each roll with Oaxaca cheese.
Put sandwiches on a large baking sheet, keeping tops and bottoms separate. Bake until cheese is melted and bread begins to crisp (about 5 minutes).
Remove sandwiches from oven, top the mushroom side of the sandwich with red onions, jalapeños, and arugula to taste.
Serve sandwiches hot. Enjoy!
Oaxaca cheese has a texture similar to string cheese. If you can't find it, substitute Mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese.
Crema is similar to sour cream or crème fraîche, both of which make great substitutes.
La Morena's Refried Bayo Beans with Chipotle and Adobo contain a whole chipotle. Mash this into your beans while warming them or remove it for a milder heat level.
