1 Timothy 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
When I was working at a school in Indiana, I had a hispanic roommate. We switched off cooking nights and shared many recipes. I have to admit, I’ve never liked canned refried beans. So, when she made her own refried beans for dinner, I was eager to learn how I could make this delicious version for myself. Since I did not know this simple recipe, I figured there might be others that don’t know either. After my first taste of homemade refried beans, I knew I would never buy the canned ones again. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. :-)
Pictured are the bean burritos I made for lunch today.
Can of pinto beans
1. Saute onions until tender.
2. Blend canned beans with juices in blender. (My husband doesn’t like the texture of onions, so I blend the sauteed onions with the beans.)
3. Add blended beans to pan with sauteed onions; salt and pepper to taste. Heat through.
If I plan on making a few Spanish meals in the next few days, I prepare extra of this recipe to have as a side.
This recipe is also good with a bit of cream cheese blended in too. (Learned this tip from my sister-in-law)
