365 Project #281 Cincos!

Cincos were a dish Don found at a restaurant in Fort Clark Springs, near Bracketville, TX. They're called Cincos because they have 5 ingredients; refried beans, jalapeƱos, onions, tomatoes and cheese on tortilla chips. They were very popular and Don has never found them anywhere else, so he makes them.

With our food sensitivities, he had to amend the recipe using;


  • Crispy rice crackers
  • Refried Beans
  • Chopped onions
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Grated soy cheese
Spread the crackers with refried beans, layer jalapeƱos, onions, tomatoes and cheese. Pop them in a 350-degree oven for about 10 minutes or until you're happy with the melted cheese. The onions and tomatoes should be done just right. 

We've been using foil to cook on, but next time will try parchment paper to see if it sticks a bit less.

Grab lots of napkins and dig in!
