Tortas can be served hot or cold. Common ingredients may include, but are not limited to Al pastor (marinated pork), Alambre (steak, bacon, onion, pepper and cheese), Carne asada (marinated steak), Carne deshebrada: (shredded beef) and Carnitas: (fried tender pork). Garnishes such as avocado, sour cream, lettuce, jalapeño, tomato, and cheese feature in various incarnations of the sandwich. The dish is popular throughout Mexico, and is also available anywhere with a large number of Mexican immigrants.
