Honduran Baleadas

I love Mexican Quesedillas and this Honduran version is a delicious variation on that type of meal! Homemade tortillas filled with refried beans, sour cream and feta cheese - yummy! And the tortillas are surprisingly easy! I have included the overall recipe and then below is the recipes for the tortillas and homemade refried beans!

1/2 garlic clove , finely chopped
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
200g kidney beans , rinsed and drained
1/4 tsp smoked paprika

1. Fry the onion and garlic until softened
2. Add the cumin seeds
3. Add the kidney beans, paprika and a splash of water and heat through
4. Using a potato masher, mash the bean mixture whilst it is still in the pan until you have a rough puree

  1. Sounds like a great meal to me! I love quesadillas, too, and can't wait to try this version. Pinned! :)

  2. My daughter is the quesadillas queen, can't wait to show this to her! I've never made the refried beans from scratch but I think we'll have to give it a try, your instructions make it sound easy! Thanks for sharing!
