Step by Step Method

Step 1

Refried beans:

Step 2

Drain beans, reserving liquid, and set aside.

Step 3

In a medium saucepan

Step 4

Cook onion in oil over medium-high heat until onions are transparent, with slightly browned edges, about 5 minutes.

Step 5

Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, garlic and salt and pepper.

Step 6

Saute for 1 minute, stirring constantly to prevent the spices from burning.

Step 7

Add drained beans to the pot and cook on medium-low heat for about 1/2 hour.

Step 8

If the beans seem too dry, add a little of the reserved bean juice, 1 or 2 tablespoons at a time.

Step 9

Remove from heat and mash mixture with a potato masher or large fork.

Step 10

Taste for seasoning, and adjust if it needs more flavor.

Step 11

For the sauce:

Step 12

Stir all ingredients together. If mixture seems too thick, add a few tablespoons of water, until it is as thin as you like it.

Step 13

Heat mixture slowly on low heat, as this sauce has a tendency to spatter.

Step 14

Cover and cook until heated through, about 15 minutes.

Step 15

To assemble:

Step 16

Spread each tortilla with a good spoonful of sour cream and a few tablespoons grated white Cheddar cheese.

Step 17

Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over low heat.

Step 18

Place the topped tortillas on the skillet one at a time; cover and warm each about 2 minutes, or until the cheese begins to melt.

Step 19

Or heat each tortilla about 30 seconds in a microwave set on HIGH.

Step 20

Roll a few spoonfuls of beans inside each warmed tortilla; place on a plate; top with rancheros sauce and more grated cheddar cheese.

Step 21

You may add chopped lettuce and tomatoes to the plate as well.
