  1. Looks wonderful I just love Mexican and indian food but of course I am of indian descent. I love crisping some bacon in the skillet and add a little chopped garlic then my refried beans. I love refried black beans. No its not healthy with all of the bacon I use but once in a while its worth it.

  2. i pressure cooked soaked beans and then mash them with the lid off after they are fully cooked and add Onion powder, garlic powder, Cumin powder, salt and pepper and a bit of butter. When its all done and ready to eat, i add a bit of hot Queso or Monterey Jack or PepperJack cheese on top of each plate that has a serving of beans, it melts on the refried beans and is heavenly!!

  3. Honestly, not mean to be rude but why not just eat out of the can without the effort of frying! To cook beans from scratch, you don't even have to soak them overnight, just boil for about an hour with a little bit of salt. Then you can manage them the way you want; fried, whole, in soups… whatever, but canned food, not my type of food. I love cooking from scratch and do not eat canned food of any kind-unhealthy. I am Mexican, by the way.

  4. Seriously, your recipe is use canned refried beans? Stick to canned curry. Might as well tell people to pick it up at 7-eleven. Duh!!
