These refried black beans are great for burritos, tostadas, tacos, huevos rancheros or anything you desire! You can also serve it as a dip. Pair it with the chipotle spicy salsa and you will have a winner. You can use black or kidney beans for this. Here is what you need to do:
1 pound dry black or kidney beans
1 small yellow onion – chopped
1 jalapeno or locoto, seeded
4 garlic cloves – minced
2 TBS cilantro leaves and stems – chopped
1 TBS cumin
1 ½ TBS salt
½ TBS black pepper
¼ cup cream
½ cup shredded cheese
Rinse the beans well. Place them in a bowl and cover them with water. Soak them overnight.
Place the soaked beans with their liquid in a pot. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook until beans are tender, approximately 60 minutes.
Remove cooked beans from heat and process them into an even paste.
Heat a large skillet with some oil. Add the beans and fry them for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Add the cream and the cheese. Mix well.
Serve with tostadas, tacos, quesadillas or as a dip with chips. Enjoy!
