One popular dish from Honduras is “Baleadas,” which are delicious Honduran stuffed tortillas. Here’s a concise version of the recipe:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • Refried beans
  • Queso fresco or mild cheese, crumbled
  • Honduran crema or sour cream
  • Avocado slices (optional)
  • Pickled onions (optional)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Add the vegetable oil and gradually pour in the warm water while mixing.
  3. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic. Cover the dough with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into small balls, about the size of a golf ball.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each ball into a thin tortilla-like shape, about 6-8 inches in diameter.
  6. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat and cook the tortillas one at a time until they are lightly browned on each side. Set aside and keep warm.
  7. To assemble the baleadas, spread a generous amount of refried beans onto one side of the tortilla.
  8. Sprinkle crumbled queso fresco or mild cheese over the beans.
  9. Fold the tortilla in half, enclosing the filling.
  10. Top the baleada with a drizzle of Honduran crema or sour cream.
  11. If desired, add avocado slices and pickled onions as additional toppings.
  12. Repeat the process for the remaining tortillas.
  13. Serve the baleadas warm as a snack, breakfast, or a light meal.

Enjoy the flavorful and versatile baleadas from Honduras!
