DIRECTIONS

  • Fry the ancho chile in enough hot oil, and blend it in a blender.
  • 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.
  • Mash them with a potato masher, and stir constantly to prevent from burning.
  • Turn the heat off, when the beans are creamy and have boiled.
  • 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.
  • Cut aluminum squares, big enough to hold 3-4 tacos.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Serve them with the chopped cabbage and the salsa.
