The star of this dish is not so much the base of tortilla, as a sauce, similar to the simplified version of pesto. Classic pesto is made from basil and is complemented with Parmesan and pine nuts. We have eliminated parmesan and nuts, but added a handca which will give pleasant bitterness.

Instead of tortilla you can also use dense sheets of pita bread or pita. Nabolite cakes with a fork and send to the oven heated to 220 degrees for 2-3 minutes.

Spread the sauce over two buns and put any stuffing to taste, for example cheese, ham, cherry tomatoes and olives.
