  • Wash and clean the onion and garlic. Drain the liquid from the canned ingredients beforehand.

  • Fry the onion, carrot, and garlic in a pre-greased with oil pan. Put the tomato paste and at the end add the canned red beans. Braise for 5 minutes and remove from the stove. At the same time, you can also cook the minced meat, which must be fried over high heat in a separate pan with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil until the liquid has completely boiled away and the meat is lightly browning. Then, combine the vegetable and meat fillings together.

  • Add the flour to the pan and fry a bit, until the flour becomes golden. Then come all the spices: chili, oregano, cumin, and salt. Add the chicken broth and tomatoes to their own juice and boil for 5 minutes. The sauce should be slightly thick.

  • Put the filling on the tortillas and roll them. On the bottom of the mold pour a part of our sauce, and put the rolls on it. Cover with the sauce and sprinkle with grated cheese. Place the mold with the rolls to roast for 15-20 minutes at 340 F°. Done!


  • As a decoration, sprinkle with leeks and put 2 spoons of sour cream.

  • The dish will be more flavorful if you cook the onion properly and choose fresh ingredients.

  • Be very careful when frying the flour. In order for it to acquire a golden hue, 1-2 minutes of frying over medium heat is enough. If overcooked, it will add bitterness to the entire dish.

Bon Appetit!
