If you’ve worked in Boston anywhere near Downtown Crossing in the last couple decades, you’ve no doubt noticed people waiting in epically long lines — both to order AND to pick up — for something of an unusual Chilean sandwich featuring green beans.

One summer, I got my entire office hooked on these bad boys.  We’d fax in an order of 40 sandwiches, get a crew together for the pick-up run, and then roll in like rockstars with a wad of cash while we skipped the lines and collected dirty stares by the dozen.

I don’t get the chance to swing by Chacarero as often as I’d like, but I occasionally make do by MacGyver-ing up my own out of leftovers.  This is my Faux Chacarero: Spring 2015 Edition.
