      Delicious!!! I made this for My 3 Chefs June 2012 tag game and I did soak my beans over night but then I followed the rest of the instructions...I couldn't believe how easy and how delicious these were!!! Definately a keeper and one I will use again and again...not only for refried beans but just for a starter for other dishes. Thank you for posting. (putting this into my Favorites of 2012).
