Expert Tips

If you have some roasted chicken, shred a little and place over the cooked beans.

When I think of Honduras, I remember the breakfasts with baleadas-refried beans wrapped in flour tortillas with scrambled eggs, avocado and grated cheese. This is comida casera or homemade food at its best: rica and comforting. I once tried a version that had shredded chicken, and another time they were served with a tomato and cabbage salad on the side. This recipe is for the classic version-simple and sabrosa. If you’re latino, then it’s very likely that you frequently, or always, have refried beans ready at home. You can also use canned refried beans when it’s more convenient or if you’re short on time. In the end, you’ll only have to prepare some scrambled eggs and heat a few tortillas to be ready! After you try these traditional baleadas, write us and let us know how they turned out. Buen provecho!

A tomato and cabbage salad will go great with this dish!

Serve a spicy salsa for guests to dress their tortillas as they like.

Directions

  • 1 In a skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic until they begin to turn golden-brown.
  • 2 Next, add the beans to the skillet and continue to sauté. While cooking, mash the beans with a wooden spoon to create a texture similar to refried beans. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 3 Separately, combine the eggs in a bowl with some salt. In a second skillet, heat the remaining oil and scramble the eggs over low heat.
  • 4 Place a portion of refried beans over each tortilla, followed by a serving of eggs. Top with a few slices of avocado, then season with salt and pepper. To finish, sprinkle some grated cheese over the tortilla before folding in half. Serve immediately.
