Ingredients

Directions

  • Prepare Quick Mole. Place a pizza stone or pizza pan on the bottom rack of the oven. Preheat oven to 450°F.

    In a small saucepan heat oil over medium-high. Add garlic and half of the poblano pepper; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in chili powder; cook 1 minute more. Remove poblano mixture to a food processor or blender; add beans and 3 Tbsp. water. Cover and pulse until bean mixture is spreadable but still chunky, adding more water if necessary.

    Working with one tortilla at a time, spread about 1/3 cup Quick Mole on tortilla. Spread with a thin layer of the bean mixture. Top with some of the remaining chopped poblano and 1/2 cup of the cheese. Place on the pizza stone or pizza pan. Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and edges are crisp.

    Transfer tlayuda to a cutting board; let cool 1 minute. Top with one-fourth of the cabbage, avocado, and tomato. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make four tlayudas total. Cut each tlayuda into wedges before serving. If desired, top with cilantro, jalapeno, and/or queso fresco, and serve with additional Quick Mole.
