This monthÂ’s recipe is: Refried Beans

Serve refried beans as an accompaniment or as a filling for tacos or enchiladas.


  • 1 Lge can of Pinto beans or 2 cups dry beans soaked overnight
  • 1 med sized onion diced
  • 1/2-1 Cup hot bacon dripping, butter or lard

If using dried beans, combine beans and onions in a pan in preheated water.

Bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Cover and remove from heat for 1 hour (or soak beans in cold water overnight).

Return to heat, bring to a boil; simmer slowly until beans are very tender, about 3 hours.

Mash cooked beans with a potato masher, and add the bacon dripping, butter or lard. Mix well; continue cooking, stirring frequently until beans are thickened and fat is absorbed. Season and add chili powder to taste.

Allow to stand until cool and either serve cold or refried
