Tetelas are a traditional Mexican dish made from a triangular-shaped corn masa harina dough that’s filled with black beans and cheese.
Let’s get started!
This recipe uses shredded Oaxaca cheese, but feel free to use Chihuahua or Monterey jack cheese.
- masa harina - water - beans - cheese - vegetables
Transfer everything from the skillet into a large blender and puree until smooth. Knead together the masa harina, water, and salt in a large bowl.
Form the dough into 15 small equal-sized balls, press and flatten each ball using a tortilla press. Place about the black bean mixture and Oaxacan cheese in the center of the masa.
Cook them for about 3 minutes per side. Drizzle Mexican crema, chopped cilantro, and a my favorite salsa for dunking!
