Heat the oil in a pan and add the meat. Season with garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper.
Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
Mix in the onions and cook until they are soft and translucent, and the meat has cooked through (about 10 minutes).
Cover and set aside.
Make the huaraches:
Combine masa, salt, and water in a bowl.
Knead for 2 minutes to achieve a smooth and non-sticky dough.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Divide the dough into equal portions and keep them covered with a damp towel.
Using your hands and a smooth surface, get a ping ball sized amount of dough and shape it into a rope.
Using a tortilla press lined with plastic wrap, press out all ropes into flat ovals.
Peel the sheet on top and flip the huarache onto your hand.
Remove the last sheet and then place the huarache onto the hot pan.
Cook for one minute, then carefully flip it and cook for 1-2 more minutes.
Repeat the steps until all masa dough is used and keep huaraches wrapped in a kitchen towel to keep them warm and soft.
Place a huarache flat on a plate and spread a spoonful of refried beans.
Add some meat on top.
Top with chopped cilantro and add some cheese on top and finish with a drizzle of sour cream. Serve immediately.
My 11 year old daughter was born to cook and she had the time of her life!
She learned a lot of cooking skills, made a ton of great food and played games in the process.
They also gave her a very nice printed booklet with recipes, and made a wonderful YouTube video of the class.

I used them last week for my twins (boy/girl) 9th birthday party. It was fantastic!
The location, decorations, etc. were all top notch.
They handled all the details from start to finish (set up and clean up too!)

Best summer camp my 8 year old daughter ever had! She's comfortable and confident in the kitchen now,
either cracking eggs, or rolling cookie dough, or mixing on the side.
She is always so happy at the end of day talking about what they learned!
Our kids are 14 and 12, and enjoy cooking immensely.
This is a wonderful little school - easy-going and knowledgeable instructors,
inviting little kitchen, very clean and friendly.

I love to cook with my daughter.
She has taught both my husband and her friends how to cook these dishes.
Her confidence in the kitchen is astounding.
This is the ONLY camp that she has asked to repeat next year.
My 7 year old son has been begging for cooking lessons. He had a blast!
They made so much food, Dad enjoyed it for dinner and
he was so impressed that his son had made it all from scratch.
