Refried Beans

This recipe is the best I’ve ever had for refried beans. It is better than most restaurants! Best of all, it is completely fat free!!!!



1/2 pound dry pinto beans

2 teaspoons salt

2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 teaspoon cumin

1/4-1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Sort & rinse beans.

Place beans in heavy pot. Add about 6 cups of water & all of the seasoning. Bring to a boil. Cook, covered, for 3-5 hours, adding water as needed. The higher your elevation, the longer the beans take to cook.

Mash beans with a potato masher or pulse in a food processor to desired consistency. If the beans are too loose/watery for your taste, cook over low heat until they are the thickness that you like.
