The roast tasted great fresh out, but was too tough to shred. Crock pot probably would have made that easier. I thought the sauce would be more flavorful as well.

Very good :) Being from the land where Tortas ahogadas were born (Guadalajara) I can say that this tasted very similar to what they sell here in restaurants and street stands

The rub was great. I did add two of the small red dried chilis, one of the ancho chilis and some jalapenos to the sauce. I also roasted all the veggies before adding to the sauce, It resulted in a really amazing smokey flavor with a little bit of heat. Thank you for a great recipe

A good family friendly recipe. It wasn't what I would consider hot or spicy. In fact, I was surprised by the blandness. The sauce tasted like plain tomato sauce and we could barely taste the chipotle. I added more chipotles and quite a bit of salt, but still felt like there should have been another layer of flavor. Since I've never had torta before, I didn't know if it needed a little adjusting or if it's really supposed to be a simple tomato based recipe. We ate a couple of the sandwiches like the recipe suggested, but ended up mixing the sauce with the pork and eating as pulled pork sandwiches.

I recently made this for our daughter's graduation party, at which we served a Mexican style menu. While this recipe took awhile, it was WONDERFUL! All the ingredients, cooking time, & instructions were accurate & so helpful. We varied this however, by combining the delicious sauce with the meat & serving it as a chipotle pulled pork on buns. Everyone loved this. Thank you for listing it DeAnna. :-)

I absolutely loved this recipe! It seems labour intensive but it isn't really and what time you do put into it pays off in spades - the taste was full and spicy and just delightfully yummy! My husband and two teenage kids loved them! The pork just melts in your mouth...Definitely making it again!
