  • 2 chorizo links cooked and crumbled (optional)


  • In a skillet, prepare the HERDEZ™ Traditional Refried Beans according to the package’s instructions.
  • Add 1 cup of HERDEZ® salsa verde and 1 cup of chicken broth to the beans and mix. Cook for 4-5 minutes to allow all the flavors to blend. Season with salt.

  • Using a pair of kitchen tongs, dip each tortilla into the bean mixture.
  • Place the tortillas on a plate and fold them into quarters.
  • Add a slice of queso fresco inside each tortilla. Garnish with Mexican cream and onion slices.
