  • 12 corn tortillas, small
  • 250 grams of smoked cheese, grated
  • A liter of vegetable oil
  • 1 jalapeno chili pepper red
  • Ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste

  • 1 stick of margarine
  • 1 red onion



We begin by whisking or blending the beans with half an onion and the jalapeño pepper. Add the margarine previously heated. Check the beans already ground and let them fry until they slide well in the deep fryer.

In a frying pan or deep fryer apart, heated a quart of oil, to moisten with water the tortillas for condimentarlas with a pinch of salt and pepper. We have to fry the tortillas one at a time into the oil, so they don't stick to each other and put them to drain in a dish. Remove any excess oil with kitchen paper or a napkin.

We have spread three tablespoons of beans on each tortilla and sprinkle the grated cheese on top. If you want you can put your catrachitas a bit of chop to give them more flavor.
