How to make it

  • Warm the fat in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onions and garlic, and sauté until they are softened, about 3 minutes. Add the drained beans to the skillet and mash them, adding the liquid a tablespoon at a time, until you reach a fairly smooth and moist consistency. Continue to cook, stirring up from the bottom with a spatula or large spoon, until the beans become a thick paste.
  • Serve the beans hot, topped with the crema or cheese and a sprinkling of jalapeño.

    I agree with Frankieanne, good beans!! I doubled up on the recipe and glad I did, because I didn't have as much as I thought I would for leftovers after we were done with dinner! Added a review in the I Made It II Group ----------------> Refried Beans

    Good beans! I ended up only using a bit less than 3/4 of a cup of liquid to get them the way I wanted them. Others may want them a lot smoother. I added salt, pepper and some chipotle chili powder. More details in IMI Refried Beans
