Re-fried Beans

Note: These are really good. Mike didn't realize they weren't from a can. And I could eat more than just a little (the canned stuff is too smooth for me). No picture. Think about what re-fried beans look like. You probably don't want a picture.

1 pound of pinto beans (or black beans if you prefer)
Chicken bouillon
chili powder


1) Soak and cook the beans as directed on packaging (if you use canned, skip this step)

Optional: When cooking the beans, add half a jalapeno and one onion to the water for more flavor.

2) Save the liquid used to cook the beans. You will need approximately 1/2 cup, maybe more.

3) Let the beans cool.

4) Put the beans in a food processor, 1 cup at a time. Add 1 tsp of bouillon, 1/2 tsp of cumin, 1/2 tsp of chili powder, and a splash or two of the bean liquid. Process until at the desired consistency. Add more liquid if necessary.

5) Repeat step 4 until all the beans are mushed up really good.

6) Serve warm or cold. Use in your favorite recipes or eat plain on chips! This freezes well.
