      I used pinto beans instead of black beans. As ms_bold did, I omitted the bean liquid and mixed up a tsp of chicken bouillon to 8 oz of water and added that to the pan for additional liquid. Instead of olive oil, I used an olive oil flavored cooking spray due to being on a fairly strict diet. I'm a garlic lover so added just a little more garlic than suggested. I topped it with some taco sauce and some craft shredded mexican style cheese blend and it tasted great! I'm going to use this recipe as a dip for tortilla chips and maybe some tacos and burritos. Yum!

      Great recipe! I ommited the cheese, and used a potato masher to smash the beans. Used Home Canned Dry Beans for the beans and used this recipe for Taco Pie

      I wanted to prepare Black Bean Quesadillas for snacking with some friends, but didn't have any refried black beans on hand. This recipe was a simple way to prepare a quick staple of tex-mex food. I did drain my beans before mashing and added chicken stock to the pan for the additional liquid. I omitted the cheese on top, as these were spread inside a quesadilla. Excellent results in my final product and no leftovers. Thanks for posting.
