    Sandy in Houston's Note:

    When I have left over pinto beans, this is our favorite recipe. Once you taste it, you'll never settle for canned refried beans again. Queso Blanco is not a melting cheese but it becomes soft and creamy when heated. In this recipe you get yummy savory beans with creamy little bits of cheese. Delicious!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 cups cooked pinto beans, undrained (canned pinto beans can be used)
    • 1/4 cup chopped onion
    • 1 small finely chopped jalapeno, deseeded
    • 1/4 cup lard (cooking oil can be used also) or 1/4 cup butter (cooking oil can be used also)
    • salt, to taste
    • pepper, to taste
    • 8 ounces queso blanco, grated

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place beans and juice in blender or food processor. Blend just enough to break into small pieces.
    2. 2
      Cook and stir onion and jalapeno in hot lard or butter until tender. Stir in beans 1 cup at a time until they are all incorporated.
    3. 3
      Continue cooking and stirring constantly until mixture thickens and you can see the bottom of the pan as you stir.
    4. 4
      Add cheese and stir until well-blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    5. 5
      Note: My home cooked pinto beans tend to be spicy. If you are using mild beans or canned beans, you might want to add a couple cloves of minced garlic and 1/2-1 teaspoon cumin.
