How to Make Homemade Refried Beans
- In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until deep golden, about 10 minutes.
- Add another portion of the beans, mash them in, and continue until all the beans have been added and coarsely mashed.
- Add about a cup of bean liquid or water and stir frequently over the heat until the beans are still a little soupy (they’ll thicken as they sit). Taste and season with salt if needed.
