This was a simple yet delectable Belizian treat found on every street corner in San Ignazio. I'm fairly sure the refried beans in Belize are not vegetarian, they can be created or purchased in the meat-free form in your kitchen. Top with the simple ingredients used here, or add a fresh salsa with hot peppers, cilantro and lime. I eat it with Marie Sharpe's habanero sauce for the best outcome.

10 corn tortillas
14.5 oz can refried beans
0.5 lb young cabbage
1 red onion
4 oz cheddar cheese
hot sauce
oil spray

Spray the tortillas with olive oil and brown in a skillet held at medium-high. Set aside on paper towels.

Mince the cabbage and onion.

Spread the bean paste onto the torillas. Sprinkle with cabbage and onion. Add cheese on top.

Broil until cheese is lightly browned and cabbage and onion smell fragrant. Serve wit hot sauce.
