We love this tasty Black Bean Huaraches. It is known that the creator of this dish was Mrs. Carmen Gómez Medina. In 1935, while experimenting with corn and bean dough, she made a kind of longer tlacoyo, which she filled with beans. In the upper part, she made some holes, and thus the name “huarache” (named after the Mexican sandal) was born; given its ubiquitous “shoe shape,” these dough-based oval containers contain various ingredients.
They’re a little harder to get in packaged form than sopes, but they serve the same purpose, so feel free to swap out the packaged sopes for the ones ordered here. Or make your own: Combine 1 3/4 cup flour dough, 3/4 cup salt, and 1 cup hot water, plus an additional teaspoon at a time as needed, to form a cohesive dough. Form dough into balls and press into ovals 6 inches long and thick before frying in hot oil in a skillet. After topping with beans, finish with your favorite trimmings like shredded lettuce, cheese, avocado, onion, tomato, and sour cream.

Tasty Black Bean Huaraches Recipes
1 can (15 ounces) of black beans
2 butter spoons
2 garlic cloves minced
¼ cup water, plus extra if needed
¼ teaspoon kosher salt, plus extra for seasoning
FOR THE HUARACHES
¼ cup vegetable oil
4 packages of huaraches or 8 packets of sopes
To Prepare the Beans
Put a medium saucepan over medium heat, and stir to combine the beans, butter, garlic, water, and salt. Once the butter is melted, and the beans are piping hot, about 5 minutes or so, mash with the back of a fork. Add salt if needed, and dilute with more water per teaspoon to form a consistency similar to fried beans.
To Make the Huaraches
1. In a large skillet over medium–high heat, heat oil until shimmering. Then fry the huaraches until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain it on a clean plate lined with absorbent paper towels and keep warm.
2. Spread each huarache with about 1 ½ tablespoon of refried beans. Eat as is or as a side dish or garnish with your favorite toppings.
Pinto beans will work here, as will homemade beans.
