TRADITIONAL MEXICAN TLACOYOS
Tlacoyo is one of the many corn based dishes in Mexico. Prepare this delicious Mexican snack based on corn dough, stuffed with refried beans and your favorite guisado or vegetable as toppings.

- 1 tsp of salt
- 250g Refried Beans
- 1/4 Tsp Cayenne pepper
- 1/4 Tsp Cumin powder
- Sour cream
- Fresh Pico de Gallo
- Freshly Made Guacamole

- Form balls of dough the size of Golf balls, roll it between your hands and flatten it to form a disc of around 15cm and set on the side on top a towel to avoid sticking on a surface.
- Mix refried beans with cayenne pepper and cumin powder for a more intense flavor.
- Add about 1-1 / 2 tablespoons of refried beans in the middle and fold the disk in half, and seal the edges like a dumpling.
