Breakfast Enfrijoladas

Prep Time:






About the Recipe

Enfrijoladas are a delightful and flavorful Mexican dish that seamlessly combines the rich tradition of tortillas with the earthy goodness of black bean sauce. This easy recipe is made with traditional ingredients to create a healthy meal that can be enjoyed as a hearty breakfast, a satisfying lunch, or a comforting dinner.


1 cup cooked pinto or black beans with some of their cooking liquid

1-2 cups of desired protien

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

6 flour or corn tortillas

Salt to taste

½ cup of crumbled Mexican fresh cheese or farmer's cheese. About 3 oz.

Optional Garnish: Chopped Cilantro


In a Blender, place cooked beans and their broth.

Blend until smooth; if it is too thick, add water or chicken broth until you have the consistency of a sauce. 

Heat the 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet and add the bean puree; simmer for about 3 minutes and season with salt if needed. Set aside and keep warm.

You can immerse each tortilla in the bean puree; transfer it to a plate, spread some of the protien you want to use (I used eggs), and fold it in half or roll it like a taquito.

After all your enfrijoladas are set on a plate, spoon some cream, sprinkle crumbled cheese, and garnish with chopped cilantro.
