Veteran – Quick Refried Bean Recipe- So yummy!

We eat a lot of BEANS in our home.  One of our favorite mid-day snacks is opening up a can of re-fried beans and eating them with chips, or in a tortilla shell.  I wanted to add a little more variety to our dip the other day…make it more fun and flavorful…this recipe turned out so yummy!

Refried Beans with Chiles


2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 small onion, diced

Little oil for sauteing

2 cups cooked pinto beans (15 oz. can of beans)

1  4-ounce can chopped green chiles

1/2  tsp chile powder (optional- depending on if you want it more spicy)

1/2  tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 TBS lime juice

Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish


Saute garlic and onion in small amount of oil over medium heat for about 3 minutes.  Add beans and remaining ingredients except cilantro and saute for another 3-4 minutes.  With the back of a wooden spoon, gently mash the beans to your desired consistency.  Remove from heat, top with cilantro and serve.  I enjoy beans as a side dish, stuffed into tacos and burritos, or served simply with brown rice, chopped tomato, lettuce and avocado.
