Baleadas is a traditional Honduran “soft shell taco” that is often eaten for breakfast but can also be eaten for lunch or dinner, which you may find yourself doing because of how simple and delicious they are! This recipe will teach you how to make the most common Baleadas, which is the simpler version that contains a delicious refried bean mixture topped with crumbled queso fresco, which can also be substituted with feta cheese if you have that instead. However, if you plan to use feta it is best to soak it in water to dilute the strength of its taste, as queso fresco is milder than feta.
If you desire a more filling baleadas, traditionally Hondurans also add scrambled egg and avocado inside! These additions, along with the protein from the beans will be sure to fill you up for a long time, so they’re great to add for breakfast baleadas if you have a long day ahead of you!
