Tortilla con frijoles y vegetales y aguacate

I mean tortillas with refried beans, vegetables and avocado. Es muy similar a un quesadilla. It’s very similar to a quesadilla.


This takes me back to my days living in Costa Rica. Yes, that’s me showing off.

You really need salsa or fresh, chopped tomato on top of this. I ran out of tomatoes – make sure you don’t.

OK, so here we go…

Es muy delicioso, mis amigos. Me debes para ello! Sorry for my dreadful Español but in my mind it lends to the authentic flavour.

Pura vida!


Wheat wraps or tortillas (preferably not corn)
Refried beans (I don’t yet have a recipe, mine were delicious and from a tin. You can use chili beans but be cautious of the sugar content.)
1 large potato
1 tomato
1/2 capsicum
1/2 large onion
2 cloves garlic
5 mushrooms


Add a little drop of oil to a pan and fry thinly sliced potato, thinly sliced tomato, thinly sliced onion and garlic, along with chopped capsicum and mushroom. Stir and cook until potato is cooked through – set aside and wash pan. Then in the centre of the tortilla add a strip of refried beans and top with the vegetable mix. Fold each side in and set with folded edges to the base of the pan. Lightly fry until golden, then flip. Serve with mashed avocado, chopped cucumber, tahini sauce and freshly chopped tomato or salsa.

You can refrigerate the beans, vegetables and sauce and whip up extra ones for a snack, when desired.
