So now you have beautiful home made tortillas that you are snacking on while thinking, “man, these are good but what now?” Put that tortilla down! Stop snacking… you’ll be full before dinner!!!
“Re-fried” Pinto Bean Tortas
12 homemade tortillas
2 c pinto beans (pre cooked)
1 jalapeno pepper
1/2 bell pepper
3 cloves of garlic
1 bunch cilantro
Finely chop the whole onion, put half in a large pan that has 1/4 c of hot olive oil and begin to brown the onions, and the other half in a bowl for your salsa. Once the onion is tender add the garlic and 1/2 of the jalapeno pepper (both minced). Chop up the pepper and the carrot very finely and add those to the onion-y garlicky goodness.
When all of the vegetables are tender add the pinto beans. Let the beans simmer until they begin to get a little pasty. Add more oil whenever the mixture starts to appear a little dry. Add a handful of chopped parsley and the juice of 5 limes.
Chop up the other half of the jalapeno, the tomatoes, a fist full of cilantro and add it to the left over onions.
Salt, pepper and lime both to taste.
Place a dollop of the beans on the tortilla, followed by the salsa and some chopped scallions. If you want, you can add some regular, or vegan, sour crème to the top.
