    Chef #928625's Note:

    My favorite way to make refried beans.Especially good for vegetarians-you get the good,smoky flavor without lard,a nice kick from the chipotles too,and a dish that's still authentic.The epazote is classic.It's used all over Mexico in bean dishes(it's said to be a digestive aid) .Epazote does have a pungent flavor and aroma that's a bit of an acquired taste,so if you don't like it,or it's unavailable where you live,cilantro makes a fine substitute.Use the lesser amount of chipotles for a milder dish-they can be surprisingly spicy-I like to use a lot.Btw;for best results,use homemade beans.This serves 4 as a side dish;I like to eat this for lunch as my protein,in which case it makes 2 large servings.
