    La Marz's Note:

    These are the "street vendor" type of tacos. They usually have them, either inside a basket wrapped in table cloths, or in a sort of metal or plastic "pail,", also wrapped in tablecloths. Delicious, but can be pretty greasy.... WARNING!!!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Fry the ancho chile in enough hot oil, and blend it in a blender.
    2. 2
      In a medium saucepan, heat enough oil (or lard) to almost cover the bottom of the pan, and add the beans to re-fry them, add the cheese and the chile.
    3. 3
      Mash them with a potato masher, and stir constantly to prevent from burning.
    4. 4
      Turn the heat off, when the beans are creamy and have boiled.
    5. 5
      In each tortilla (previously softened in a microwave, to prevent the bottoms from breaking), add a tablespoon, or you desired amount, of beans, and fold them in half.
    6. 6
      Cut aluminum squares, big enough to hold 3-4 tacos.
    7. 7
      Wrap them, and put them in a "tamales" pot, or put a bowl, face-down, on the bottom of the pot, so that tacos don't get wet.
    8. 8
      Put enough water in the bottom, being careful not to get the tacos wet (again!). Turn on the heat (low-medium) for about 15-20 minutes.
    9. 9
      Serve them with the chopped cabbage and the salsa.
