Tacos Dorados De Frijoles

Total Time

My mom used to make this ones, when we didn't have enough meat to feed a family of 7. But since we always had a pot of beans, these were our life-savers, sometimes. Simple and delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put enough oil in a large skillet and heat on medium.
  2. In the meantime, warm the tortillas using a washcloth to wrap them and nuke them for 20 seconds.
  3. When tortillas are soft and pliable, put 2-3 tbsp of the refried beans in the center, and fold them without breaking the botom of the tortilla.
  4. When the oil is hot enough, fry the tacos in batches, to the desired browness, and drain over a paper towel.
  5. Serve hot, with all the garnishes mentioned.

I cut the recipe in half since it is just my bf and I; big mistake, I didn't get any! I added some garlic and salsa to the beans before filling the tacos. The only problem I had was that the bottoms of almost all of them broke, but that was surely user error! lol Next time, I will make 16!

When I do not feel like cooking meat, I always have beans in the cubbard. I make these from time to time and they are wonderful. I use cheddar cheese and I omit the sour cream. But these are yummy!
