Comfort Food Classics: Tacos de Frijoles con Queso {She Made/Ella Hace}

National Taco Day (October 4th) is just around the corner, so this month for She Made/Ella Hace girlichef and I decided to give you something to taco 'bout.

Over the years I've shared many a taco recipe here in my Cocina, including my favorite tacos ever - Tacos de Chorizo.  But for some reason I've never blogged about the taco we eat most in our house...Tacos de Frijoles.  My kiddies love them for breakfast before they leave for school.  Hubby loves to eat them any time of day.  And I love them because they remind me of my childhood.  Gramm always packed a couple Tacos de Frijoles in my lunchbox when I was a kid, so I'd grow healthy and strong.  My friends loved to trade me their bologna sandwiches for my Mexican lunch.

There's really not much to making Tacos de Frijoles.  All you need is some tortillas and refried beans.  If you want to get really fancy, you can add some queso fresco and your favorite salsa.

Tacos de Frijoles con Queso


  • Refried Beans
  • Flour or corn tortillas
  • Queso fresco
  • Chile de Molcajete (roasted tomatillo & chile de arbol salsa) or your favorite salsa

Heat tortillas on a comal or griddle over low heat until soft and pliable.  Spoon 3 to 4 tablespoons of refried beans onto each tortilla.  Fold tortillas in half over the refried beans.  Heat the bean tacos on the comal, flipping over occasionally, until heated through.  To serve, top with crumbled queso fresco and Chile de Molcajete.  Enjoy!
