Simple Homemade Refried Beans

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Cook4_6

After trying some of the refried beans recipes from this site, I will never again eat them from a can. However, the recipes I enjoyed were time consuming. This recipe is a marriage between scrumptious home made and easy (like canned).

Pretty tasty but not my fave. If in a rush I will probably do this again other wards I will take the long road and make them authentically.
