    I like my refried beans to be pretty basic, as these are. I prefer to add seasonings that go with whatever I will be using them in. Now, I did have some technical problems, including letting the pot go dry, but managed to avoid total disaster. They probably dried out a touch between the cooking of the beans and the final steps, so I found that using the immersion blender to mash it all up greatly reduced my frustration level. I did add a bay leaf and some peppercorns to the beans as they were cooking. I apparently have no adobo seasoning, so used sazon and a southwestern no-salt seasoning mix to keep the sodium low. I used some of this to make quesadillas with beef. As the beef was only mildly seasoned, I added chopped jalapenos to the refried beans, and had a nicely spicy snack. I cooked 1/2 lb of beans and the end result fit nicely into a quart container.

    They were very bland and I had to use twice as much salt to flavor them and I found the lard unnessacary with a non-stick skillet
