Homemade Organic Refried Pinto Beans

I learned a lot about how to make refried beans at Serious Eats and have decided that a smashed pinto bean is the way to go instead of a pureed bean; However, feel free to change this recipe to suit your family’s needs.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups prepared Homemade Organic Tex-Mex Pinto Beans (leftover beans work great for this recipe)
  • 1 cup reserved cooking liquid from cooking the beans
  • 1 minced Homemade Organic Pickled Jalapeno, seeded if desired and more if you’d like it spicier (optional)
  • 1/2 cup shredded organic grass-fed Monterey Jack cheese (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. home rendered organic lard or tallow

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Smash the beans with a potato masher, do not puree.
  2. Heat a large skillet with some lard.
  3. Add the beans, minced jalapenos (if using) and reserved cooking liquid to the skillet.
  4. Fry the beans for a few minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Add the the cheese (if using); Mix well.
  6. Enjoy!
