This is another way to quickly, easily make refried beans...tastes so much better than canned! Although, my cousin raised in Texas says the butter should be replaced by lard...I'll leave that up to you!

Cheap, easy and delicious. I live in Southern California so beans are a staple and this recipe was a hit at our party.

Great recipe....made as directed but added a pinch of chili powder and cayenne pepper for some heat. Also, next day it made an awesome bean dip!
