    Dib's's Note:

    I got this recipe from a little old lady who ran a cantina near the beach in Ensanada Mexico. Black beans are the best for this recipe. If the color throws you use red.

      Excellent beans, but maybe you should consider adding a LOT of bean-O to this recipe. We had these last night, and my girl friend is killing the plants in the house. *Grin*

      This is spooky - I know for a fact that this was one of the very first recipes that I made and reviewed shortly after I joined Recipezaar about 7 or 8 months ago! Darned gremlins! In any case, I have made them many times since then in my "Death to Canned Refried Beans" campaign. I always make them with Guinness stout or a good strong British brown ale instead of beer. I've eaten them as a side dish, and they have become a staple ingredient any time I make a recipe that calls for refried beans as an ingredient.

      Ecellent! I used half Kideny and Half black beans since I couldnt decide. It took 1 1/2 cans of beer. I made 11 bean burritos with them, 10 for the freezer and one I just ate.
