Ingredients Jump to Instructions ↓

  1. 8 flour tortillas

  2. 1 (8 ounce) can traditional refried beans

  3. 1 (16 ounce) package kraft deli style sliced American cheese

  4. 3/4 cup oil, for frying

Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Warm the tortillas for 15 seconds in the microwave. This will prevent them from cracking when you work with them.

  2. If they are not sufficiently heated, heat for an additional 10 seconds until fairly warm.

  3. Once heated, keep them warm by placing them in a tortilla warmer, or two inverted plates.

  4. Put the oil in a deep skillet. The oil should be about an inch deep.

  5. Turn the burner to medium-low. The oil is ready when a drop of water "dances" on it.

  6. Remove one tortilla at a time from the warmer and place on clean surface.

  7. Spread 1-2 tablespoon refried beans in a line down center of tortilla.

  8. Place half a piece of cheese, followed by an additional fourth a piece cheese on the beans.

  9. Fold the top and bottom of the tortilla in, then the sides.

  10. Place, seam side down, in the oil.

  11. Fry until browned on one side. This will not take long. Turn and brown on other side.

  12. Prepare the remaining tortillas as you did before and place them to the oil. You should have NO MORE than 3 frying at one time.

  13. When you remove them from the oil, place on a thick layer of paper towels to dry.
