This is a great way to add a little "oomph" to plain refritos. I used refried black beans (my personal preference over pintos) and only 1/8 tsp cayenne. Everything else was as directed. The amount of heat was perfect for me - not too spicy, just a nice background heat. Served with cheddar-jack cheese and sour cream in a flour tortilla. Yum! Thanks for sharing!

I made this as a side dish for a Mexican meal. I didn't want it overly spicy, so I halved the amount of jalapenos and cayenne. Nice way to jazz up plain refried beans.

I can't wait to try this with some jalapeno & cilantro tortillas we found at the store! Thanks!
