    Irwin Family Favorites's Note:

    While in Spain, I had the hankering for Mexican food, so Lyn McKittrick sent me this simple and delicious recipe for refried beans. I would make 3-5 pounds at a time to serve up to my fellow missionaries.

      A bit more varied in texture and distinctive in flavor compared to canned refried beans. Needed salt. Worth doing once just to see the process! We used bacon grease instead of lard and topped them with shredded cheddar cheese.
