    I used smoked paprika for the pepper, to a good result I think.

    I made these last night for my nachos. I mashed the beans in a pie plate with a potato masher. Easy! They were delicious and just the right consistency to stay on the tortilla chips! Thank you!

    An old-fashioned potato masher does a pretty good job on the beans, too.

    You're right, sunny! And they really are delicious. Mashing the beans is a bit of a mess, but still worth it.

    Nice to see a refried bean recipe that does not call for lard.
