Homemade Refried Beans
We had a belated Cinco De Mayo party (same one as the Flan), and I decided to make my own Spanish Rice and Refried Beans. I have never made either from scratch before, it was about time. The beans turned out really well, my Father In Law is a bean lover and he enjoyed them! The rice is in the picture but it was awful! so I wont tell you about that!
4 strips of bacon, diced
3 cans of pinto beans, drained
1/2 onion diced
1 tsp garlic, chopped
2 tsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp hot sauce (I use Cholula)
1/3 can of Rotel Tomato and onion
salt and pepper to taste
Fry the bacon until crisp, remove and set aside.
Cook the onion and garlic in the rendered bacon fat until lightly browned. Add one can of pinto beans and mash with a potato masher or spatula.
Add the remaining cans of pinto beans and the rest of the ingredients including bacon and cook thru.
Taste and re-season if necessary.
