    My hubby made these for me once and I will never go back to eating refried beans out of a can. The bacon bits in this make it absolutely yummy.

      Pour off most of the bacon grease, leaving the bottom of the skillet well coated. Return the bacon pieces back to the skillet on low heat.

      These are very good and super easy! I used pre-cooked bacon (4 slices) and re-crisped it in the skillet, which released just enough fat to flavor the beans quite well. I love refried black beans so did a mix of half black and half pinto and just roughly mashed them with the wooden spoon I was stirring with so they still had a lot of texture. I used about 1/4 tsp pepper and after tasting, added 1/4 tsp of salt also. Since I was making these the day before I needed them, I waited to add the cheese until I was reheating. I also stirred in a spoonful of salsa as I was reheating my serving. Served with Southwestern Meatloaf Burgers which was an excellent combination. Thanks for sharing!

      Very easy, and tasty too! I didn't want to run out to the store to buy refried beans, but had all the ingredients for this at home. I didn't add the cheese, but used one can of beans and two slices of bacon. Thanks!

      I was looking for a quick recipe and found this - it was exactly what I wanted. I used only one can of pinto beans, some 'real bacon bits' leftover from another recipe, a little taco seasoning and cayenne pepper. they're delicious and were super simple to make - thanks for sharing!
