Homemade Refried Beans and Burritos

These refried beans were delicious.  Try them in a burrito by serving on tortillas and topping with guacamole, shredded cheese, and cilantro.  James and I were so happy to eat this meal!  It makes good leftovers too.

Refried Beans

3 C pinto beans

5 C water

1 onion, roughly chopped

2 garlic cloves

1 T cumin seeds

1 whole hot pepper (dried or fresh)

3 T oil

1 onion, chopped

3 t salt

1/4 C cumin, ground

1 t black pepper

  1. Soak beans at least 6 hours, drain.
  2. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a pressure cooker and cook for 10 minutes.
  3. After the pressure is released from the pressure cooker, remove the lid and take out 1 cup of liquid – discard.  Also discard whole hot pepper.
  4. Smash the beans in the pressure cooker with a potato masher (or with a Nalgene like we did).
  5. Saute the chopped onion in the oil in a large frying pan.
  6. Add the beans and the rest of the ingredients to the onion.  Cook until the beans reach the desired thickness.

  1. I want to know whats in that wine glass that goes with this!

  2. It’s white wine – sauvignon blanc I think. Maybe not everyone would agree that it goes with this 🙂
