Recipe by Chef Jean
READY IN: 38mins
SERVES: 8-16




  • Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lay the tortilla on 2 baking sheets(or make them in two batches). Spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Place in oven for 5 minutes or until they just start to get crispy.
  • Heat the tomato sauce, chili powder, salt and dried onion in a sauce pan and let simmer for 5 minutes. Rinse the beans and add to the sauce, mash the beans slightly to thicken the sauce. Allow to cool while you prepare the toppings.
  • Top each tortilla with the sauce and beans, leaving about 1/2 inch around the edge of the tortilla. Each one will take about 1/4-1/3 cups.
  • Top with the cheese and back for 8 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is crisp around the edges.
  • Allow to cool slightly and top with the lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream and 2 slices of jalapeno each.
  • Cut in quarters to serve as appetizers.
