Description

Enfrijoladas: delicious Mexican comfort food!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Refried Beans
  • 1 cup Vegetable Stock
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • 6 whole Small Or Medium Size Tortillas
  • 3 cups Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

Preparation

Heat up the refried beans in a large pan. Add in the vegetable stock, water and tomato paste and blend until smooth. You want the sauce to be very thin, so add more liquid if necessary. If the sauce is too thick it will weigh down the tortillas and tear them. Using tongs, take a tortilla and dip in the sauce. This is a bit of an art—you want them to soak through enough that they are pliable and won’t tear, but soak them for too long and they’ll come apart when you lift them out.

Lay the tortilla dipped in bean sauce flat in a small baking dish. Sprinkle some cheese on one side of the tortilla, and then fold it in half like a quesadilla. Repeat this with each tortilla until the baking dish is full. Pour the remainder of the bean sauce into the pan and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350ºF for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.

I’ve been meaning to review this one for awhile, because I have made this several times! I’ve used veggies, brisket, shredded chicken – you name it. I definitely recommend low-sodium beans, especially if you are already using a seasoned meat. Easy and delicious!

My family really liked these. We will probably make these again, but my tortillas did fall apart even though the sauce was really thin.

I made these last weekend and the whole family loved them. No leftovers. Delicious and easy to make. They have been requested for dinner tonight, so I know they were a hit!

The family really liked this recipe. I added shredded chicken. Good thing my kids were familiar with and liked the ingredients because the appearance was a little off putting when dished onto a plate. Next time I will make these with homemade refried beans as the canned were a little on the salty side. Then I think they will be 5 mitts.
