We love these beans. Use all pintos if black food freaks you out. I prefer bottled beer over cans, and I offer Beano however that takes all the fun out of eating these. Besides, it's not often that I get to deliver revenge on my husband. Just sayin.

How to Make Refried Beans


  • 1In a large pan saute the onions and garlic to just translucent.
  • 2Add the jalapenos and continue to saute until JUST beginning to brown.
  • 3Add the beans, 2 cans rinsed and drained, two with juice.
  • 4Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for around 1 1/2 hours, adding beer as needed. I just add 1/2 a can/bottle of beer and sip the rest.
  • 5Keep an eye out-You don't want the beans to dry out AND stir often.
  • 6Open second beer and add as needed or drink it and add chicken stock.
  • 7Don't add salt until dish is done and taste first.
