i'm not one for measuring toppings i like cheese so i pile it on. so just find what works for you put on as much or little as you like


Heat a large skillet over medium heat, slice steak in to thin strips or cubed which ever you prefer and pan-fry the round steaks to desired doneness.
Slice the rolls lengthwise. Spread about 1 tablespoon of sour cream onto one side of each roll, and top with about 1/3 cup of mashed pinto beans per sandwich. Place a cooked round steak per sandwich on top of the pinto beans, and then layer each sandwich with one-fourth of the avocado slices, tomato slices, and sliced pickled jalapenos, about 1/2 cup of shredded lettuce, 1/4 cup of cilantro, and 1/4 cup of crumbled queso fresco cheese. Squeeze a lime wedge over each sandwich, close, and serve.
