Recipe Ingredients for Refried Pinto Beans

2 cups dried pinto beans, soaked overnight in a large bowl with water to cover by 2-inches, and drained
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups chopped yellow onions
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons jalapeno
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon chopped oregano

Recipe Directions for Refried Pinto Beans

  1. In a large, heavy pot, combine the beans and enough water to cover by 1 to 2 inches. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the beans are very tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours, adding more water as necessary to keep covered. When the beans are soft, mash in the pot with a potato masher or the back of heavy wooden spoon. Remove from the heat.

  2. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until soft, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic, jalapeno, chili powder, cumin, salt, and cayenne, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 45 seconds to 1 minute. Add the beans and any cooking liquid from the pot, and the oregano, and stir to combine. Cook, stirring with a heavy wooden spoon, until the mixture forms a thick paste, 15 to 20 minutes, adding water a bit at a time to keep the beans from drying out too much.

  3. Remove from the heat and transfer to a decorative bowl.
