After trying some of the refried beans recipes from this site, I will never again eat them from a can. However, the recipes I enjoyed were time consuming. This recipe is a marriage between scrumptious home made and easy (like canned).
What a great recipe for home or an awesome recipe for a pot luck! It's ready to bake in 17 minutes, so with just a few minutes of preparation, (you could actually prepare it and stick it in the fridge until you need it)!
This recipe was originally one of Martha Stewart's but I've adjusted it to make it more to my taste. This has become my DH's favorite vegetable recipe. In fact, we love it so much that the two of us usually pig out on the whole recipe.
