    minnie chef's Note:

    This is my sister-in-law's recipe. It contains bacon and jalapeno. What's not to love? Everyone demands this at family gatherings. Read recipe to get an idea of the time it takes- soaking, cooking, etc... Servings is a guess. We always have this at large family gatherings- my mother will know.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8-12

    Yield:

    giant pot

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      First rinse, then soak a pound of pinto beans overnight in a pot of cold water.
    2. 2
      In the morning, bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for several hours (3 minimum).
    3. 3
      If you don't want to soak them overnight, you can use the quick method: Put beans into a pot of water, bring to a boil, then turn off heat, put the lid on, and let sit for one hour. Then simmer for 3 hours.
    4. 4
      Saute two pieces of bacon until almost crispy, then add the onion and saute until caramelized (about 8 minutes). Add garlic and jalapeno, saute a couple more minutes, add some oil if necessary.
    5. 5
      Drain beans (the beans do not need to be completely drained. Save all of the cooking liquid "bean water".).
    6. 6
      Put sauteed onion mixture in food processor along with about 2 cups of the cooked beans, puree.
    7. 7
      Add the puree to the rest of the beans in the cooking pot- stir to mix.
    8. 8
      Add the juice of one lime and season with salt, stir. Taste the beans. (It can take a lot of salt as this makes a large batch of beans.) Adjust salt to taste. If the mixture seems dry, add a bit of the left-over bean water until you reach the desired consistency.
    9. 9
      Serve topped with cheese, if you desire.

      Having never made refried beans before I chose this recipe based on the reviews. All I have to say is YUM! I bit the bullet and tried this new recipe out for a mexican food themed party and got rave reviews from everyone. Super easy and very tasty!

      These beans were really great and easy to make. I used turkey bacon, so it was a relatively low-fat version. Worked great on the mexican pizza I made for dinner. Thanks for posting. : )
