Refried Beans

Enough for 2 people…

  • 2 shallots (or 1 onion), cut finely
  • 2 cloves of garlic pressed
  • 1 can of bean (red kidney, pinto, …), rinsed
  • some lard (e.g. from making carnitas!), or melted butter (1/4 cup?)
  • cumin
  • smoked paprika
  • regular paprika
  • salt and pepper

Fry the shallots for ~5min in some oil on medium. Then add the garlic for 30s, and then the beans. Stir in the spices. Fry for another 5-10min on medium. Taste to make sure seasoning is good.

Can add a little bit of broth if desired (to make it a little more liquid when mashing).

Remove from heat and mash. Mix in melted lard (or butter) to get good consistency.
