Torta de Huevos Rancheros y Salchichas
A torta is a sandwich that is usually spread with re-fried beans and sour cream, it offers a complete on the go lunch. Remember the Chavo del 8, and his tortas de jamon? (Ham Tortas). I can still remember Kiko giving Chavito an empty Torta. The bread alone for tortas is yummy, is usually crusty on the outside and light inside, like a french bread but rounded like a large dinner roll. Here I made it with eggs and hot dogs for a full-filling Breakfast.
A funny fact !! in Peru, Torta means Layered Cake.
