Tortas Ahogada / smothered tortas is a typical dish from the Mexican state of Jalisco, particularly in the city of Guadalajara. Although it is popular in some other parts of Mexico, it is most popular in Jalisco. It is called "drowned" because the sandwich is submerged totally or partially in a sauce made primarily of a dried chili pepper called chile de arbol. Less spicy versions of the sandwich, made with a tomato-based sauce, are also available.
