 Refried Beans
 
 This Recipe is pretty authentic.
 
 1) Soak Pinto Beans overnight in water and then pour off the water and
 rinse continually until water is clear
 2) Barely cover Beans with water, bring to a boil and simmer approx 3 hours!
 3) Sautee lots of fresh garlic and chopped onions and add to the beans,
 Also add Bay Leaves and Cumin (lots)
 Now for the trick:
 4) When Beans are tender add salt to taste, remove from heat and mash them
 good with a potato masher etc... Then (remember the trick for making fluffy
 potatoes?
 Well it works for pintos as well) put the mashed beans into a deep casserol
 dish and bake covered in the oven for approx 1 hour on 350 degrees.
 
 Muy Saboroso,
 
 These beans will be just like the real thing only no added fats!
