      Wow!!! Wow! Wow! Wow!!! I used Anastazi beans, because I had them on hand. I used butter instead of lard. For the rest I followed the recipe. The flavor is incredibly complex, but not too spicy. Really wonderful. This is the kind of recipe you pull out to wow your friends. That's if you can bare to share them.

      I loved how simple this recipe was. I was going to buy some refried beans to go with recipe 8604, but I couldn't believe they were over $1.50 per can. So I decided to make these refried beans using my handy crockpot. They turned out great! I used bacon fat for the lard and added a few dashes of taco seasoning. The flavor is great! I will be serving this with my mexican dishes in the future. Thank you so much!

      These turned out great! I only used half the amount of cumin and may cut back a little more next time. I think I'll throw in a bay leaf while the beans cook and add a bit of chili powder at the end. I noticed these taste much better the next day. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
