Start to Finish: 30 minutes

Servings: 4



3-5 large avocados, halved and pitted

1/2 onion, finely diced

Juice of 2 limes

1 teaspoon dried oregano

Salt and pepper to taste


12 corn tortillas

Oil for frying (canola or olive)

Prepared guacamole (see above)

1 jar red salsa

1 can refried beans

10 ounces of queso seco (crumbling cheese), or any cheese, grated

Chopped cilantro

Into a large bowl, scoop the avocado from its shell. Mash it with a fork to desired consistency. Stir in onion, lime juice and oregano. Salt and pepper to taste.

In a large skillet on medium-high heat, pour a half inch of oil. When the oil is hot, add the tortillas in a single layer and fry until crispy. Transfer to a plate with a paper towel to drain excess oil. Once the tortillas have cooled, spread three tortillas with guacamole, three with refried beans and three with salsa. Garnish with cheese and cilantro.
