Another wonderful Mexican recipe originating from Oaxaca. These are a traditional Mexican party and street food because they are like pizzas but with beans, salsa, and cheese. They serve as a great snack for anytime of the day. You can serve these open face or folded in half.







Makes 4


  • 2 cps. Maseca flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 cps. water


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine Maseca flour, salt and water. Mix with hands until smooth and the flour has all been incorporated. Add more water a tablespoon at a time if the dough falls apart.
  3. Divide dough into 4 palm size balls.
  4. Place each ball in between two sheets of plastic wrap or a large ziplock bag. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a dinner size plate that is pretty thin (see picture).
  5. Bake the tlayudas on cookie sheets until crispy and edges start turning golden brown about 10-15 minutes. Flip the tlayudas half way through baking time.
  6. Spread a layer of  refried beans as the base and add your favorite toppings such as shredded cabbage or lettuce, queso, avacado, and salsa roja or salsa tomatillo.
