You are right when you say this gives extra flavor to ordinary, bland, refried beans. These spices go such a long way toward improving the flavor. It is not authentic I'm sure, but I have also added a 1/4 cup of butter or margerine before heating. This gives the beans such a creamy texture and and cooking the butter into the beans seems to keep them from getting to runny. Would highly recommend this recipe to anyone.

I used 1 can of black beans, drained, for one of the cans of the refried beans. I also added some shredded cheese. We thought these were really good and I will definitely repeat this often. THANKS!

I cut the recipe in half and found when I added the sour cream the beans were a bit too runny. However I heated them a little longer allowing them to dry out.The addition of cumin and chili powder was great. I also added some garlic . It may be the brand of Fried beans that caused them to be runny. In any case they were delicious The beans were served on Tostados
