Ingredients

for 8 servings

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (250 g)
  • 1 cup water (240 mL)
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil (120 mL)
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 2 cups refried black bean (280 g), warm
  • ½ cup queso fresco (75 g), crumbled
  • 8 tablespoons crema fresca

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, water, olive oil, and salt. Knead for about 2 minutes, or until a soft dough forms.
  2. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and shape into balls. Cover the dough balls with a kitchen towel and let rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Stretch the dough balls carefully into rough circles or ovals, about 6 inches in diameter.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Working one at a time, cook the baleadas for about 1 minute on each side, until the center rises and small brown spots appear.
  5. Top each baleada with black beans and queso fresco, then finish with a drizzle of crema. Serve immediately.
