Anyone who's been to Queens-based Mexican food truck Tortas Neza knows that it stands at the intersection of fútbol and good food. This episode of 1 Minute Meal is a tribute to that overlap, and to the moment of celebration when your oversized, painstakingly assembled sandwich hits the counter, informing you that those dinner plans will have to be postponed.
