Full of flavor and super simple to make can't go wrong with this! Don't leave out the cilantro. It gives the sandwich a fresh kick that you won't regret! Thank you for the recipe. Read More

It's tasty with modifications. It's definitely not a torta ahogada for those who are familiar with them. Chipotle sauce is spicy but quite bland. I added a little brown sugar and Knorr chicken bullion to taste. That did the trick. It's basically an extra tasty roast beef sandwich. Will make again. Read More

EXCELLENT! We are sandwich people so I knew that I had to make these...The flavors are wonderful! I used 'Philly' steaks in place of the roast beef but I cannot wait to try it w/ the 'Slow-Roasted Beef for Sandwiches'. This was a HUGE hit and a definite keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I couldn't find the cooking sauce and ended up with a packet of McCormick's chipolte pepper marinade seasoning. I used too much and needed to add more broth to keep the dipping sauce from being too salty... Still, the final result was really tasty! My husband can't stop talking about how good those sandwiches are. Might use more onions next time. Read More

I couldn't find any 12oz packages of Chipotle sauce but found a 6oz can at Walmart. I decided to start with just 1 can to test the flavor. glad I stopped there! The canned Chipotle stuff here in San Antonio has a serious kick to it (and I love spicy food). overall it was a very good flavor and easy meal to put together. I put provalone cheese on my sandwiches as well. Read More
