In This Recipe
Combine the flour, water, egg, salt and oil in a large bowl. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until it’s completely mixed and not sticky.
Form into 16 balls, cover and let rest 20 minutes. Then with each ball, stretch or roll into 6-8" tortilla.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, coat with cooking spray and cook each tortilla until browned on both sides, about one minute total. Stack the tortillas on a plate to keep them warm and soft.
To assemble, smear 2 Tbsp beans over the tortilla. Add 1 Tbsp crema, 1/2 oz cheese and a dash or two of hot sauce
