Refried Beans

Posted on February 3, 2009. Filed under: Hispanic |

Soak 2 lbs Pinto beans overnight OR bring to boiling, simmer 2 minutes, remove from heat, let stand covered for 1 hour. Bring to beans to boil.


2 onions, quartered

2 cloves garlic Bacon chunks (I use about 2/3 lb bacon)

1/8 cup salt

Cook until soft (3-5 hours). Scoop beans plus fluid into hot frypan, fry and mash until they have the consistency you like. I leave quite a few unmashed beans because I think it looks better. This makes a lot of refried beans which I then divided into small freezer containers and freeze. They freeze really well. It’s nice having an instant side dish or ingredient for burritos on hand.
