Let me begin by saying there's no lard going down in these!!
It's only appropriate to follow up a beans post with Refried beans.. I happen to think so!
1-2 green scallions
2 Tb of oil
Take these simple beans to a whole new level (by adding these additional ingredients)
1 Jalapeno or 2 Serrano Chilies (sliced lenght wise)
Chorizo (as much as your heart desires)
1.Begin by chopping the scallions, add oil to pan & turn heat to a medium high.
2.Drop in scallions & saute about 2 mins.
3.With a slotted spoon, begin adding beans (allowing liquid to drain).
4.Cover and allow beans to evenly boil, finally take out a hefty smasher and smash away!
( Add about 1/4 cup of bean stock if beans are somewhat dry. Remember they will harden up!)
----> For taco's add 1/8 of a cup of stock ( you want these to hold up in a taco) & for a side of refried beans add 1/4 or more.. you want the consistency of creamy mashed potatoes.
*** For Favor-filled beans: Saute scallions, chorizo & chilies, until chorizo is fully cooked.
Then follow steps 3 & 4.
(These are perfect for Burritos)
