Refried Beans (Frijoles Refritos) Recipe

Refried Beans (Frijoles Refritos) Recipes

Ingredients :

6-8 tbsp lard or corn oil

1 onion, finely chopped

1 quantity Frijoles (cooked beans)

To garnish:

freshly grated Parmesan cheese or crumbled cottage cheese

crisp fried corn tortillas, cut into quarters

Method :

Heat 2 tbsp of the lard in a large heavy-based frying pan and sauté the onion until it is soft. Add 1 cup of the Frijoles (cooked beans). Mash the beans with the back of a wooden spoon or potato masher, adding more beans and melted lard or oil until all the ingredients are used up and the beans have formed a heavy paste. Use extra lard or oil if necessary. Tip out on to a warmed platter, piling the mixture up in a roll. Garnish with the cheese. Spike with the tortilla triangles, placing them at intervals along the length of the roll. Serve as a side dish.

Serves 6-8

There is much disagreement about the translation of the term refrito. It means, literally, twice fried. Some cooks say this implies that the beans must be really well fried, others that it means twice cooked. However named, Frijoles Refritos are delicious.
