      These turned out fantastic! Very easy to make. I had less than 4 cups of beans and it worked well. I just used some bacon grease and towards the end, added some garlic powder and a little more salt. Very authentic tasting! Wildheart, thanks for another great recipe!

      I had left over pinto beans with bits of ham. I added a bit of bacon fat to the skillet and heated them though and mashed just with a hand held potato masher. They turned out great. Rave Reviews from all. Thank You for sharing.
