Refried Beans made with canned pinto beans

Refried Beans is one of those dishes that is so good in a restaurant but making them at home does not always turn out as well.  The cans of refried beans can be very greasy or strong flavored.  A great solution is to make them out of canned pinto beans. 

Allen's seasoned pinto beans with Vidalia onions is a great starter. Drain at least half of the liquid off of the beans.   Pour the beans in a lightly oiled skillet (cast iron works great).  Let them start to heat through and then mash them with a ladle or potato masher.  When they are the consistency you like, add hot sauce to taste.  You can also add cumin, garlic and even red pepper for a kick.

These beans go great in a Mexican casserole or in a warmed tortilla with chicken or ground beef.    They are very versatile.  They can also be added to a 7 layer Mexican dip.  Recipes can be found at cd kitchen or cooks.com or make up your own dishes and impress your family.
