2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 envelope dry yeast
3 tablespoons non-dairy butter (softened)
1/3 c. shortening
In bowl 1...mix yeast and 1/3 c. hot water...set aside.
In bowl 2... mix flour & salt. Add butter & yeast mixture, mix in shortening. Add more hot water as needed... mix the dough as if you were mixing dough for bread. Knead well and as you knead the dough slowly dampen your hand into more shortening and spread the shortening into the dough on a floured counter, as you continue to knead the dough repeat rubbing your hands in more shortening and add it to the dough with more flour until the dough is soft and not sticky. Create a ball out of the dough, place it in a bowl cover with a clean dry towel, set aside for about 20 minutes.
1 lb. Beans (Pinto, Red, Pink or Kidney)
2 tablespoons of oil
1 Sazon envelope (buy it in any Spanish store)
2 Jamon envelopes (buy it in any Spanish store)
1/8 tsp. oregano
1/8 tsp. salt (use what you desire)
pinch of red crush pepper
pinch of black pepper
2 tablespoons of Sofrito
1/3 c. tomato sauce
1 potato (peeled, & cubed)
5 cloves of garlic
1 green bell pepper
1 small bunch cilantro
1 med. onion
Put all ingredients in blender or food processor. Set aside.
In a non stick pot put in oil on med. heat. Add sofrito and simmer, add sazon, jamon....simmer for about 2 minutes. Add beans & tomato sauce, simmer then add 2 c. of water, salt, a pinch of black pepper & red crush pepper. Add oregano & potatoes, taste the sauce for any extra seasoning. Add as you wish. Boil on med. heat until potatoes are cooked. Make sure the beans have a nice thick sauce before serving.
To thicken bean sauce mash a few of the potatoes inside the beans for instant gravy.
As beans are cooking, knead one more time the your floured dough and divide into small size balls just like the picture below.
Place oil in a frying pan, as the oil heats up on Med. heat...shape your flour balls into a tortilla (small disc size) . Fry tortillas until they are golden brown. Place them in a paper toweled dish to drain the oil.
Serve Tortillas over beans. To eat break tortillas with your hands and smear the tortillas as you eat inside the bean sauce. Enjoy...it is so good I could eat this everyday.
