In my world, there are five main food groups: protein, dairy, fruits and vegetables, grains and Mexican food. I’m constantly searching for new ways to introduce more Mexican cuisine into my diet and I think this sandwich is my latest, and greatest, addition. The Cubana Torta from Tacos El Champu (2322 S. Campbell Ave., Springfield, 720-292-3410) is a monster of a sandwich piled high with pork in three forms: sliced ham, tender carnitas and flavorful al pastor. It comes topped with melted cheese and fresh avocado for a creamy, indulgent touch, and is served with two salsas for the perfect hit of acid. This sandwich requires a post-meal nap, so make sure you plan accordingly.
