Sardines in tortillas with spicy tomato sauce and refried beans

Pan de cazon, literally translated as bread with dogfish, is a dish popular in Yucatan. I was surprised to find that the dogfish tasted more like tinned sardines. So I tried making this with a couple of tins of sardines and it was really lovely.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp dried epazote or oregano
  • ½ –1 habanero chilli, stem and seeds removed, roughly chopped
  • 600ml/20fl oz tomato passata
  • 250g/9oz sardines in olive oil, drained
  • 250ml/9fl oz corn oil, for deep frying
  • 12 small corn tortillas (about15cm/6in tortillas)
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 avocado, stone and skin removed, to serve
