A quick and satisfying breakfast, lunch or evening meal, baleadas are thick flour tortillas folded over a variety of fillings. The most common filling for baleadas is a simple mix of beans, cheese and the Honduran-style sour cream known asmantequilla. More elaborate fillings include meat, eggs and avocado. Customize to your taste. For a fast snack, you can use store-bought flour tortillas. But for authentic flavor, make your own. It's easy! 4 to 6 servings INGREDIENTS Flour tortillas (recipe below) -- 8Refried beans -- 2 cupsCrumbled queso duro, cotija or feta cheese -- 1/2 cupMexican-style sour cream (cream agria) -- 1/4 cup METHOD Heat an ungreased griddle, comal or skillet over medium flame.
