The cumin makes these beans very special. I have made the basic batch and enjoyed them. (I love monterey jack cheese!) I plan to dress the beans up with fried chorizo for making tostados. Thanks for posting this recipe! Other refried beans recipes I have looked at have not appealed...they appeared to be too plain.
