    YUM! I forgot the garlic and only had 1 serano pepper and I wished I had 2... next time! I used olive oil and only 1 tbl. I didn't have cheese, but didn't need it or miss it. I just ate it on a tortilla for lunch! Thanks!!

    Cut the dripping to 1 tbsp ( I love the flavor but try to cut back) I used 2 fresh Jalapenos, 2 large cloves of garlic and omitted the cheese in the beans because I was adding cheese to the Tacos. Result VERY tasty refried beans Thanks Annacia for this do again recipe
