    Shirleen McCorkle's Note:

    My mom gave me this recipe. Everyone I have ever cooked these for say they will never eat any other refried beans again. There are not any restaurants beans that can beat these!

      Shirleen, FANTASTIC, reminded of way back when. 1930's and up. You must remeber beans of any kind were called "man fruit" when I was a kid. I made these today as written. The Women folk when I was a kid used Lard instead of butter or Marjorine ( it wasn't invented yet) also, there was always a little Bacon thrown in. I will try that the next time BUT, this is great. Thanks a bunch. Firehouse cook aka Cap'n Jack
