Warning, now gushing about my favorite tortillas. I LOVE these tortillas. If I can ever figure out how to make some like this I would be sooo excited. They are corn tortillas with all the flavor of corn, but in the ingredients there is some vital wheat gluten which makes them pliable like a regular tortilla. They also come in a taco size - not the tiny regular corn tortilla size. However, they are like $3 for a package of only 6. I splurge for them occasionally because they are so tasty. They are made by La Tortilla factory and called hand made style Corn Tortillas. I have to buy them at Randalls. It is the only place I know that carries them. Try them if you love corn tortillas. OK, done gushing. Back to the recipe.
We did these really low key. I let the kids pick a type of tortilla, I put the bean base on it, then cheese, and they picked at least 2 of the 4 veggie toppings available.
- 1 15 oz can black beans (pinto would also work fine)
- 1 cup salsa (today I used our favorite costco salsa Jack's. Love it's hint of lime)
- tortillas -used desired type. I used flour and corn
- shredded cheese - I used sharp cheddar, but Monterrey Jack, or Mexican blend, or Colby jack would all be good.
- toppings - I used corn, canned chopped green chiles, chopped sweet peppers (red and yellow), and olives today. You could also include onions, jalapenos, tomato, avocado, and even meat if desired.
- Salsa or sour cream for serving (optional if desired -one son added sour cream -no one added salsa today.)
- Preheat oven to 450.
- Mash black beans with a potato masher or fork. Mix with salsa.
- Place as many tortillas as will fit on a large baking sheet. Top with bean mixture, cheese and whatever toppings you desire.
- Bake for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and beans are heated. (Honestly we didn't time them at all. I just went about making a second batch asking the next group what they wanted on them and checked periodically to see if the first batch was done.)
