Chili Bean Star Supreme

  • Author: One Lovely Life
  • Yield: 8-10 1x


A fun childhood favorite from my grandma! These freeze and reheat well, too, so feel free to make a double batch! 


  • 1 (14oz) can chili, or about 2 cups homemade chili
  • 1 (14oz) can refried beans, or about 2 cups homemade
  • grated cheddar (or other) cheese
  • flour tortillas (gluten free, as needed)


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine chili and refried beans.
  2. Heat and stir until well mixed. Turn off heat.
  3. Scoop about 1/3c bean mixure onto the center of the tortilla.
  4. Sprinkle with grated cheese.
  5. Fold tortilla into a pentagon shape (or square, if that’s easier!).
  6. Heat a pan (or panini press or grill pan) over medium heat.
  7. Place each star fold side down on a pan (or panini press or grill pan) and cook until golden on both sides.
  8. Feel free to serve with salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc.
