Refried Beans with Chilis

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.
