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.

These were very good beans! They didn't quite have the same consistency of refried beans, but they were tasty anyway. I think maybe I didn't mash them well enough. Thanks for a great recipe, Leeannr!
