Baleadas Catrachas by Alisse Ferrari

Tegucigalpa, Francisco Morazán, HN


A baleada is a wheat flour tortilla, folded in half and filled with mashed refried red beans. It is one of Honduras's most popular food.

People may also add other ingredients. The most common types of baleadas are the baleadas sencillas (simple baleada) which has crumbled cheese and crema. The other baleada is the baleada mixta (mixed baleada) which has the same as the baleada simple but with an addition of scrambled eggs. Many other people add sausage, plantain, hot sauce, avocado, chicken, pork and chismol which is diced tomato, onion and bell pepper. A baleada can be served at anytime of the day.
