This is almost a perfect recipe, but then one tiny ingredient kills it. In fact, I would have given this 5 Stars & raved about how it needed 3 more stars to even come close to how delicious it was...but that damn "oil" snuck in and ruined the whole darn recipe & this review. Cook the chorizo & drain half the fat because there's going to be a ton of it, then add in the beans--that's it. The canned refried beans already have an unheard of amount of lard/grease/oil in them--why add more? By the way, if you were to make actual refried beans (from dried or canned whole beans) then you might need the extra oil...maybe. So try this recipe without adding the oil and you will have something DELICIOUS! Also, you could add some diced onion to the browned chorizo & saute until softened-then add the beans! Yummy too.

This was UH-MAZING. Really, if you're bored of boring old refried beans this is the recipe you need to try. It was a big hit!
