This recipe was indeed easy to make. To add a little extra zing I used a dash of cumin and hot sauce in it. It complimented Diana Neal's Taco Dorado's #12833 well.

This was the crowning touch to a dinner of chili rellenos and Spanish rice. I was looking for a easy canned bean reicpe without the bacon or lard added. Thanks for a good recipe!

Great! The only thing I did different was to cook 2/3 cup of dry beans per the directions on the bag, and use them instead of a can of beans. Otherwise, followed the recipe, and it turned out fantastic. Thanks.

easy & very yummy! took out some beans plain to use in my mexican lasagna tonight, then stirred in some cheddar & ate for lunch. next time I will also saute the onions in the butter for a couple minutes first

Sooo much better than canned! They were a little too salty the 2nd time I made them, and I noticed that the pinto beans I used had salt in them. I may eliminate the salt altogether next time. I used 3 TB butter and the taste was still wonderful. Will be making these again and again.

My mom and I love this recipe! It's so easy and delicious. We have tried this several ways; once we used about 2 cups of pinto beans that she had made in the crock pot the previous night. Always amazing!

This was very easy to make. I did make a couple of changes, I halved the butter and sauteed the onions in this. I also added a half of a diced jalapeno pepper to it (fresh) and a clove of garlic. I removed the onion/garlic/pepper mix, then poured the beans in the pot to heat. After that, I followed the recipe, except I garnished with sliced green onions. I really enjoyed this quick and easy Refried Beans recipe! So easy to throw together after a long week at work! Made for PAC Spring 2011.

Wow! So simple with basic ingredients and an end result that is utterly fantastic! I sauteed the onions in the butter and added to the mashed beans.

I had never made refried beans from scratch, and I was absolutely amazed. I also added some garlic powder and all purpose seasoning. I made it to use in a taco casserole, but could have sat down with a bag of chips and at the whole thing. DH wants me to make it again soon.

We thought these were easy and good! I cut the amount of butter down a bit, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
