How to Make Refried Beans With Chipotle Chillies

  • Soak dried black beans for a few hours and then cook until tender enough to mash. Or substitute with about 2 cups of washed and drained canned beans.
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add onions and cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until golden brown, for about 8-10 minutes.
  • Add minced garlic and stir for another minute.
  • Add finely chopped chipotle chillies and stir. Then quickly add the beans.
  • Use the back of your ladle, or a potato masher, to mash the beans.
  • Add the water or liquid, bring to a boil and allow the beans to simmer away for another 10-15 minutes until the liquid has reduced.
  • Retain some moisture in the beans as they thicken upon standing.
