A Torta

THE TORTA AHOGADA, A SALSA-DROWNED SANDWICH INVENTED IN GUADALAJARA, MEXICO IN THE EARLY 1900S, HAS RISEN ALONG WITH ITS CITY OF ORIGIN. THE SANDWICH WAS THE PRODUCT OF A SLIP OF THE HAND, A MISTAKE. BUT WHAT A DELICIOUS MISTAKE IT WAS, THE SPARK FOR A DISH THAT SLOWLY SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE CITY OF ROSES LIKE A FIRE JUMPING FROM ROOFTOP TO ROOFTOP, EVENTUALLY TAKING ITS PLACE AS ONE OF THE SIGNATURE DISHES OF THE BOOMING METROPOLIS.
