Easy Refried Beans

 

                                     Traditionally, refried beans are made from pinto beans.

                This version also incorporates red kidney beans for an interesting alternative.

Pair this with Chicken-and-Black-Bean-Burrito-Skillet

As a Young man I recall my mother preparing these beans of course she had her recipe, and she used lard to refry them, and pretty much left them whole, but simmered a long time ,these days with everyone, health concerns and lard is out, with so many Mexican eateries it has become a part of the family meal schedule,  Tacos, Rice,burritos, tostadas any tamales, have been adjusted from the original recipes because of health concerns.
