    sasha's kitchen's Note:

    I've been making this refried beans many times for my Mexican dinner combo,sometimes I use pinto beans,sometimes I use red beans,depends on what I have in my kitchen,whatever beans I use,it's always very tasty.Before I cooked beans on the stove top,and I had to keep an eye on it all the time and add water many times in case it got burned.but now I use slow cooker which enhances the flavor big time and you can do other things while it's cooking,give it a try!

      Wonderful!! I changed the the green chili to a few jalapenos, since I like the extra kick. Great for those of us who make a lot of Mexican dishes.

      So delicious...I'm guessing 'Mustang Sally' didn't use lard. And yes, you shouldn't drain the water. Lard is the secret to making these as good as the Mexican restaurants in Texas!

      Tried this recipe to use up some dry beans. I think I made a mistake by draining the cooked water so I guessed & added some water while blending beans. It wasn't fabulous for me but it could have been the beans I used or draining of the cooking water.
