Ingredients

  • 9 Ounces beef (ground) or pork chorizo hard or ground chorizo
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 4 scallions chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 1/2 cups queso fresco/monterey jack cheese
  • 6 or 8 inch package flour tortillas
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • salsa of your choice
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Instructions

  • If you're using hard chorizo, remove from package and cut into slices and then cube. Set aside. 
    If you are using ground chorizo, remove from casing into bowl, set aside.
  • In a skillet, heat 2 tbsp of oil over medium heat and add chopped onion. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the chopped garlic and cook for 1 minute. 
  • Add the beef or chorizo. If it is ground beef/chorizo, cook for about 7 minutes.
    Note: The ground chorizo may be too oily, just put mixture through a mesh strainer to remove excess oil.
    If using hard chorizo, cook for 5 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. 
  • Mix garlic, onions and beef/chorizo all together. 
  • Heat refried beans for 1 minute in microwave, so they will be easier to spread on tortillas. 
  • Taking one flour tortilla at a time, spread about 2 tbsps of the refried beans on tortilla. 
  • Follow with chorizo, cheese and scallions. Top with another tortilla. 
    Repeat full process until you have used all the mixture.
  • Heat and grill tortillas in a skillet over medium heat for a minute or so on each side or until cheese has melted. 
    Note: Could use non stick spray or a little bit of oil for grill pan or skillet.
  • Take each tortilla and cut into quarters. Serve immediately with salsa of your choice and sour cream. Enjoy!
