I grew up in a house where beans and tortillas were in constant supply, for lunch and for dinner. For breakfast there was always bread, which we ate with butter and guava jelly. Many times, however, we'd fill the bread with refried beans and make a delicious sandwich that we never could get tired of.
Enfrijoladas for dinner are still one of my favorite dishes. They're so easy to make that you don't really need a recipe. Many people compare enfrijoladas to the well-known enchilada, even though the sauce in enfrijoladas is refried beans. The tortillas, which are lightly fried just to heat them up, are filled with cooked, shredded chicken and Mexican queso fresco. Feel free to use other cheeses, like Monterey Jack or any other cheese you like.
Making these delicious enfrijoladas does not require any complicated technique or even a lot of work. Even better if you have ready-made beans. If you have baked or grilled chicken in the fridge, all you have to do is shred it and use it as filling for the tortillas. This way, you'll have a simple, yet delicious dish for any night of the week. Need something else to go with dinner? I'd recommend a simple green salad, as the enfrijoladas are rather filling.
