Last year my family visited Mexico and we’ve been hooked on Mexican food ever since! Guacamole is a necessity around here now and we just can’t get enough of all the Mexican yumminess!

Of course Mexican food usually includes tortillas of some kind. One of the unexpected foods we fell in love with when we were in Mexico is their tortes! Trust me…they know how to make sandwiches in Mexico!

I knew I wanted to come home and incorporate more bread into my Mexican cooking. Cheesy Mexican Bread is a just a little spicy, a whole bunch cheesy, and reminds me of all those yummy tortes we ate, only this is much easier to make.

Let me show you how to make it!
