DIRECTIONS

  • In a large frying pan put the oil and garlic. Heat over medium heat until the edges of the garlic start to lightly brown.
  • Add the can of pinto beans with their liquid. Stir and mash (using a potato masher) for 10-15 minutes until the mixture is fairly smooth.
  • The beans might be a bit runny, but once they have cooled and been reheated, they will have thickened.
  • One of my daughters likes to have whole beans in her refried beans, so I keep some of the whole pinto beans aside and add them the last minute or two.
  • This recipe serves 3-4 as a side dish. If you want to make up this recipe for bean and cheese burritoes, you will have to double the recipe.
  • I often like to add a little cumin powder and a dash of oregano to this recipe while the beans are cooking.
