  • These hearty enfrijoladas sprinkled in Las Palmas® Red Enchilada Sauce are perfect as an appetizer or light dinner. Recipe created by Chef Eduardo Ruiz.


  • 1 can Chili Beans
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 clove garlic
  • 16 oz low-sodium beef stock or beef broth
  • 8 oz cherry tomatoes
  • 4 oz apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 8 oz Hot Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 6 oz sour cream
  • 16-20 corn tortillas
  • 16 oz queso panela


  1. In a heavy-bottomed sauce pan, add olive oil and garlic.
  2. Set your stove to the lowest possible heat level. Allow the garlic to cook very slowly (about 15 minutes).
  3. Once garlic is soft, add 28 ounces of the Las Palmas Chili Beans and heat for about 10 minutes.
  4. Add the beef stock and bring to a simmer for about 1 minute, stirring frequently.
  5. Puree using a blender or hand blender. Season to your desired liking. Keep beans on very low heat until ready to make enfrijoladas.
  6. Wash cherry tomatoes and cut in half. Place them in a glass or plastic bowl.
  7. Place the apple cider vinegar and sugar into a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer until sugar is dissolved to create a hot pickle liquid. Pour hot pickle liquid over cherry tomatoes and cover for about 1 hour. Strain cherry tomatoes, saving 2 tablespoons of the pickle liquid.
  8. In a food processor place the cherry tomatoes, sour cream, 2 tablespoons of pickle liquid and Las Palmas Hot Red Enchilada Sauce. Pulse for about 1 minute.
  9. Place 2-3 tortillas on a plate and roll them up. Pour over enfrijolada sauce, and top with cherry tomato sauce and crumbled panela cheese.
