CEMITAS: PUERTA RICAN PULLED PORK SANDWICHES

● 1 cemita bun (or other round sesame seed)

 ● 1 tablespoon canned ​adobo​ sauce

● 2 canned chipotle peppers, sliced into strips

● 1/4 cup cooked ​Mexican pulled pork​ (TRADER JOES PREMADE)

● 1 tablespoon ​chopped ​cilantro

● 1/4 cup shredded Mexican string cheese, ​queso Oaxaca

● 4 slices tomato

● 1/2 small avocado, sliced

Gather the ingredients.

-Begin by splitting the cemita in half with a serrated knife.

-Using the back of a spoon, press down on the interior sides of the bun so little indented pockets form to hold all the sandwich ingredients in.

-Add a half tablespoon of adobo sauce to each side of the bun and then add half the chipotle peppers on top of each half as well.

-Add the pork to the bottom half of the bun and then add the papalo (or cilantro), queso Oaxaca, tomato, and avocado to the top half.

-Close the sandwich and wrap tightly in butcher paper.

-Slice it down the middle and serve.

enjoy 😉
