Where is it Popular?
Torta Ahogada Fiesta is popular in Mexico, especially in the state of Jalisco. Tortas ahogadas are served in many Mexican restaurants and taco stands, but they are especially popular in the cities of Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque, which are located in the state of Jalisco. The dish is also becoming increasingly popular elsewhere in Mexico and all over the world.
Making the Recipe Gluten Free
Torta Ahogada Fiesta is usually made with bread that contains wheat, making it unsuitable for those following a gluten free diet. However, there are several ways to adjust the recipe to make it gluten free. The most common way is to substitute the wheat bread for gluten free bread. Alternatively, people can also use corn tortillas or lettuce leaves instead of bread.
Making the Recipe Vegan
Like with gluten free, Torta Ahogada Fiesta can also be adjusted to make it vegan-friendly. The pork and chorizo is traditionally used in the recipe and can be replaced with beans, tofu, mock meat, or even mushrooms. Additionally, the mayonnaise used in the sandwich can be substituted for vegan mayonnaise.
