We named this sandwich the Three Amigos of Phoenix but it takes its lead from the famous Mexican sandwich, Torta Cubana. Instead of using three types of pork, this sandwich uses three types of meat, sliced roast beef, pulled pork, and pulled chicken.

This Tex-Mex sandwich is served on a toasted hamburger bun, coated with Mexican cream, the first layer starts with sliced roast beef, topped with the pulled pork, then a layer of caramelized onions, green peppers, jalapeno peppers, and queso cheese. The layers continue with pulled chicken and topped off with another slice of roast beef and finished with the top of the toasted hamburger bun.

The Three Amigos of Phoenix sandwich is a bit hot with jalapeno peppers and Mexican cream but it tastes wonderful. With this recipe, we include a recipe for a dried Chipotle Spice Mix that makes about ⅓ cup total. You will only need 2 teaspoons of it, so you can save the rest for another meal in a sealed jar.

This recipe also includes ingredients and directions to make Mexican cream which takes 12 to 24 hours total. If you do not want to make the Mexican cream, mix a cup of mayonnaise with 1 tbsp lime juice and 1 tsp Chipotle Mix to make Mexican mayonnaise in place of the Mexican cream.
