I have always hated the canned refried beans that are sold in the stores. I came up with this recipe for when I made dishes that needed refried beans. I hope you like it.

Wow. I am a college student, so I don't have a lot of cooking resources available to me, but this recipe was easy and great! All the girls on my hall in the dorm were going crazy over it! I'm gonna have to start making it in bulk!! Thanks so much for spicing up the food intake of a girl that's sick of cafeteria food!
