Tacodillas as a concept are the intersection of all my favorite things about tacos, quesadillas, and burritos. They are easy to hold / eat with your hands like tacos, they are folded and stuck together like a quesadilla, and they have beans like burritos.
You can use the recipe I've typed as a reference but it's really easy to customize these!! I made some with the ingredients below and then made others that had beans, iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced raw white onion, and sour cream.
avocado or neutral oil
1 can refried beans
small flour tortillas (number will depend on size of tortilla)
1/2 of a white onion
1 red bell pepper
1 cup or more of freshly grated pepper jack cheese
sour cream + your favorite hot sauce
thinly cut iceberg lettuce
smashed avocado or whipped guacamole
Start by thinly slicing the onion and red bell pepper. Then add oil to a skillet and sauté the onions/ pepper over medium low heat until softened - you can cook them as much or as little as you like, this is a preference thing. Remove from heat.
Next add a tablespoon of oil to a large flat bottomed pan (you can also do this on a griddle) heat the oil over medium low. Add in as many tortillas will comfortably fit without much overlap. Heat them for about 30 seconds on each side until they soften and start to puff up. Remove the tortillas and use a spoon or butter knife to spread a layer of refried beans on each. Add the sautéed onions/peppers and a pinch of cheese. Add these back into the pan unfolded and cover for 3 minutes. Uncover the pan and use a spatula to fold each tacodilla in half - if the tortilla is not yet lightly golden and toasted, continue cooking + flip until each side is.
Continue this process until you run out of supplies or have as many as you want!
Serve with sour cream mixed with your favorite hot sauce (see note below), thinly shredded iceberg lettuce, and smashed avocado.
You can use the recipe I've typed as a reference but it's really easy to customize these!! I made some with the ingredients below and then made others that had beans, iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced raw white onion, and sour cream. You could add a thin piece of chicken or steak or change up the veggies / add more veggies but I really like to keep these simple.
I like to mix 2 tablespoons sour cream w/ 1 tablespoon of hot sauce (Cholula Green Pepper sauce is my favorite right now) - you can easily make a larger portion - and use as a dipping sauce for these.
If you don't like refried beans, heat black beans in a small sauce pot and then smash them - unshmashed beans will not hold together and your tacodilla will fall apart.
