DIRECTIONS

  • Melt bacon grease in a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over medium heat; add onions and jalapeno; cook and stir until tender; add beans a half-can at a time, stirring to incorporate; add seasonings to taste.
  • Cook beans, stirring frequently with wooden spoon and mashing them (use the back of the wooden spoon or even a potato masher) as you go, for 15-20 minutes until liquid evaporates and beans thicken; top with cheese and serve.
  • NOTE: If you like your refritos especially smooth, run them through the blender or food processor before cooking.
