    From the Test Kitchen

    This take on the beloved Latin American dish—whose name is a reference to the toasted tortillas at its base—features toppings of white rice and a vibrant summer vegetable medley tossed in a light, creamy dressing. It’s all served with a simple side of zesty, buttery corn on the cob.
