Refried Beans by MexFoodJournal

Flavorful homemade refried beans are easy to make in 15 minutes. Start with your favorite bean variety, pinto, black, or bayo.


  • 2 cups cooked beans pinto, black, bayo with a little cooking liquid
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 finely chopped garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • Salt 1/2 tsp


Chop the onion. Finely chop the garlic.
In a medium sized pan, heat the oil to medium and add the chopped onion. Cook until the onion becomes transparent.
Add the chopped garlic and cook for 1 minute. Do not allow the garlic to brown which will give it a bitter taste.
Add the cooked beans with a little bit of the cooking water plus the salt and pepper.
Cook for 2 minutes before mashing.
Mash the beans to the constituency you prefer.
Cook for 5 minutes stirring continually.
Turn off the heat and allow the beans to rest for 3 minutes before serving.
