A baleada (Spanish pronunciation: [baleˈaða]) is a traditional Central American dish, believed to have originated on the northern coast of Honduras.[citation needed] It is composed of a flour tortilla, filled with a smear of mashed "refried" red beans (a variety of bean native to Central and South America), crema (mantequilla blanca), and crumbled queso duro (salty hard cheese). This is usually called baleada sencilla (simple baleada). Other ingredients may include scrambled eggs, avocados, meat, or plantains.
