    Bev's Note:

    Refried beans are typically made from pinto beans, but black beans work well, too. Add a dab of sour cream if you crave a little richness. Recipe courtesy of Gourmet Magazine.

      I have just recently 'come around' to the world of beans, and seem to have a particular affinity for the darker sorts. This, then, is my first foray into the world of refried beans. These very nicely picked up the notes of garlic... I admit I also added a pinch of chile peppers to this. Very good, simple flavour, and nicely enhanced by the fresh cilantro. I actually ate this on a small tortilla shell with lettuce, onions & tomatoes as a very tasty light dinner. Thanks Bev I know I will be making this one again!

      So much better than the canned stuff! Added a little cumin and onion powder. Delicious!

      YUM! We did not need to add water, our can must have had a fair amount of liquid in it. I was also making Pico De Gallo and was low on cilantro so I just chopped up a little green onion in it and it was great! This will be one of my go-to recipes.
