Oaxacan Clayudas



Clayudas are a Mexican dish that has a lot in common with pizza. Tortillas are slathered with a spicy black bean purée (the same way a pizza gets spread with tomato sauce), baked, then sprinkled with various toppings.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs. canola oil
  • 1 small white onion, diced (1 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 15-oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce, drained
  • 1⁄2 tsp. light brown sugar
  • 4 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 8 oz. slaw mix
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
