Oh my gosh, these are excellent refried beans. I would give you 10 stars if I could. Thank You!
Delish! I soaked mine overnight - used about 5 strips of diced bacon (and the drippings) - tossed in a dash of garlic and chili powder. Don't be worried if it seems like you have a lot of liquid when you start mashing the beans - it will disappear as you mash and finish cooking the beans. I mashed mine until they were almost the consistency of mashed potatoes. Thank you for the recipe.
These are fantastic! Very easy to make and as authentic as a favorite Mexican restaurant we go to. Thanks!
Tasted just like the mexican restaurant down the street.
These are the best refried beans I have ever made! Just like going out and eating! Thank you so much!
I grew up in SoCal. I have had my share of good restaurant refried beans. I have been looking for a recipe that would keep the kids from requesting a night out at the tacqueria...this was it. Thank you so much for sharing. My kids had thirds and this will be on our food rotation. Nothing like a fantastic recipe that is healthy (I render my own lard from grass fed farm), cheap and the kids love.
Very good refried beans! I skipped the bacon fat, since I'm watching my calories, but this was still a great dish. I left the mixture very chunky, as I like to have some whole beans in the mix. I just crushed enough beans to thicken the mix, and got the same taste and texture that I get at my local Mexican place. Next time I'd add some cumin and tabasco if I was serving as a side dish, but as part of a filling for burritos, it was perfect as is. Thanks for posting!
These are good. I really liked thenm with the bacon drippings. The flavor was outstanding. Thank you for sharing, this beats the canned variety hands down.
This recipe was made on 11/16/09 as part of our dinner. Except for cutting in half, the recipe was made as written. After the beans were finished and salt was added to taste, we still felt like finished dish was misssing that "certain something ". But these were served with 10 Minute Cheesy Mexican Rice and Tamale Casserole. And all combined together made a very nice Mexican style dinner. Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "
Yummy, easy recipe. I substituted olive oil and a little liquid smoke and beef bouillon powder for the bacon grease. Will definitely make again!
