My sister-in-law who was born and raised in Mexico City shared this recipe for sprucing up canned refried beans. They taste like you've been cooking them for hours.

This recipe really dressed up the plain old can of refried beans! I cut the recipe in half and used a can of jalapeno flavored refried beans. I didn't add any water, because I felt it didn't really need it. These beans had a wonderful flavor! I will definitely be making these again!
