    PanNan's Note:

    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!

      I live in South TX (also called "North Mexico" around here) and these are really GOOD! I have had my share of bean and cheese tacos from the taco stands and shacks, and these are as good if not better than some of theirs! I use the nonfat canned beans to start so I can control the fat/salt. I add a clove of garlic to the onions when they are cooking, and then a bit of salt and pepper. I taste first before the salt, since some bacon is saltier than others. It's nice to get that authentic taste without all the LARD, which is a key ingredient. Perfect topping for some homemade tortillas, which I always have on hand!

      Awesome! The bacon gives it a great flavor. My daughter said these tasted better than the refried beans at our favorite Mexican restaurant so that speaks volumes! Thanks for sharing!!!
