Lady Laura, what a wonderful recipe!
It is so easy and quick to prepare and tastes just wonderful! The cumin and hot sauce go great with the beans (I used garbanzos) and make for an awesome veggie dip!
I luved its smooth texture, too.

What a simple and delicious idea! I used northern beans, garlic salsa, cumin and 1 tsp garlic powder. Wonderful! Tastes just like refried beans except not all the fat. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
