2 Onions cut in pieces
2 Cloves of garlic

Hello friends, as you may know, beans are very important in Mexican diet, they are a rich source of iron and its flavour is delicious, I have been receiving many questions of how to cook them, so here you are:

Refried beans can be enjoyed as main course or as garnish with many dishes such as chilaquiles, quesadillas, ranch eggs, grilled meat, enchiladas, etc.



Wash the beans, soak them in cold water for about 3 or 4 hours or during the night.

Next day add the onion in pieces, garlic, a pinch of salt, and oil and add more water. Cook for 2 hours aprox. or until they get soft.

Once they are cooked take them off the fire and let them to cool down. While getting cold try them and add more salt if necessary.

When the beans get cold, fry the chopped onion with a little bit of oil and a small amount of beans while smashing them with a fish slice or turner spatula. Let evaporate the remaining water until getting a paste consistency. Not too dry though.

As soon as obtaining such consistency, take them off the fire to a small plate and spread shredded cheese on top and decorate with a few corn chips.

Thank you for joining me in another recipe my friends and stay tuned for the next one.

Thank you, Lupita.
