The Easiest Beans
Printed from www.CrazyforCrust.com
Recipe from www.Pinchmysalt.com
1 can (14.5 oz) black or pinto beans
2 cloves garlic, crushed in a garlic press
1-2 tablespoons canola oil (or use bacon grease, as Pinch-My-Salt did)
Salt and pepper to taste
Salsa or hot sauce, if you wishAdd the oil and crushed garlic in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook for just about 30 seconds, then add your beans, with their liquid. Use a potato masher to crush the beans to your desired consistency. (If you prefer a dryer refried bean, add less liquid.) Cook for a few minutes until bubbly. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you want a spicy bean, add some salsa or hot sauce. Enjoy, and try not to eat them all in one sitting!
