Yum! I made this omitting the bacon grease and using olive oil. I enjoyed with chili rellenos! Thanks! Made for the TYM game.

Very good. Easy way to doctor up canned beans into something special. I did not drain the beans and I liked the consistency after simmering for 10 minutes. Because the liquid in the canned beans already has plenty of salt (and so does the cheese and probably the adobo seasoning), I did not add any additional salt to the mixture. Turned out perfect.

This was very easy and quick! Tastes great too. Next time I will not process my beans as much...I prefer a mix of paste and whole beans. The onion, jalapeno and garlic mix was perfect cooked in the bacon grease. This is a great quick and easy recipe. Made for PRMR tag.

I halved the recipe since it's just my husband and me, and it worked great. This is such a good recipe. It was my first time having (or making) refried beans, and it won't be my last! Thanks for the great recipe 2Bleu! Made for PRMR Tag.

My first time making refried beans, and yes, it's much better than canned and so easy and tasty that you might as well make them yourself! My only problem was deciding whether the cans should have been drained first or not because the recipe didn't say. The first can I processed undrained, and they seemed watery, so the second can I processed drained and they were too dry. So the 3rd can I processed undrained, and as far as I was concerned they turned out perfect after boiling a bit. I left a few pieces of whole beans in for texture. I thought I had adobo seasoning at home, but I couldn't find it so I used a chili rub instead. That added some depth to the taste, though I'm sure adobo would have been great too. The only other change I made was to substitute 1 tablespoon or so of butter for the bacon grease. I used queso manchego cheese, which is Spanish not Mexican, but it melted up fine and was the perfect topping to this dish! Thanks 2Bleu!
