INGREDIENTS:
4 (4-ounce) chicken, beef or pork cutlets
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
1 cup plain bread crumbs, for dredging
2 eggs, beaten
Vegetable oil, for shallow frying
4 Bolillo or Telera rolls or French bread

Chipotle mayonnaise, recipe follows:
4 lettuce leaves optional
8 (1/4-inch) slices tomato
12 (1/4-inch) slices avocado12 thin slices white onion
12 pickled jalapeno slices or 4 canned chipotles in adobo
8 lime wedges, for garnish

CHIPOTLE MAYONNAISE:1 canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce or 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:
Season the cutlets with salt and pepper, to taste. Put the flour in a dinner plate and season with salt and pepper. Put the bread crumbs in a second plate and the beaten eggs in a shallow bowl. Dip the cutlets into the flour, then the eggs and finally into the bread crumbs, pressing down on both sides so that the bread crumbs adhere to the meat. Heat 1/2-inch oil in a large skillet to 350 degrees F. Pan-fry the cutlets in batches until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes per side depending on the thickness. Set aside to drain on paper towels. To assemble the sandwiches, halve the rolls horizontally. Pull out the soft center of the slices and discard. Spread each roll evenly with the chipotle mayonnaise. Put the cutlets on the bottom halves of the rolls and top with lettuce, tomato, avocado, onion and jalapeno. Arrange the sandwiches on serving plates and garnish with lime wedges.

In a small bowl mash together the chipotle chile, lime juice and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
