My friend, Annette, taught me how to make semi-homemade refried beans when I ran out of my old stand-by, canned refried beans :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Over medium-high heat, heat the oil in a skillet.
  2. When oil is hot, add the drained and rinsed pinto beans. onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. With a potato masher, mash & mix everything together & turn heat to medium-low. Beans will thicken the more you mix & mash.
  4. Serve while still warm and creamy.
