Refried Beans Recipe

By Sarah Pachev

  • * 1 cup dried pinto beans
  • * 2 T olive oil
  • * half a small onion, minced
  • * 2 cloves garlic minced
  • * 2 tsp salt
  • * 1 tsp cumin
  • * 1 tsp chili powder


Soak the beans overnight in a bowl of water. Drain on the rinse water. Cook on the stovetop in 3 cups boiling water for about 2-3 hours or you can cook on low in a crockpot all day.

Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil in a pan. Mash beans and then add to pan along with spices and salt. Cook for 5 minutes. We love eating this with Spanish Rice on the side. It is also great as leftovers in Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas.
