YUMMMMM! This is soooo good, and can be used so many ways. Top it with queso fresco for a great bean dip! I'll never borther with traditional refried beans again!

Once you make this recipe, you will never purchase canned refried beans again.This recipe is amazing for any Mexican or Tex-Mex meal or side dish. This is my go-to recipe for bean burritos. I've substituted El Pato's Jalapeno tomato sauce or added fresh jalapeno's to regular tomato sauce for more heat. Add red rice to these beans and top with cheese...delicious!

Absolutely outstanding! Great for family meals and for entertaining. I always serve it with Tex-Mex Rice with Corn for two perfect side dishes to any Mexican meal.
