Santa Fe Frijoles Refritos



  1. Heat oil in large skillet and sauté onion until softened, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and sauté 2 minutes.
  3. Add beans and chipotles; mash mixture with bean masher or back of large spoon, adding reserved bean cooking liquid or water until a thick paste is formed.
  4. You also can use a food processor to "mash" beans. To do this, transfer about 3/4 of bean mixture to food processor and pulse until mixture is coarsely pureed.
  5. Return mashed beans to pot. Continue to cook, stirring, until heated through.
  6. If beans seem too dry, add a little more cooking liquid.
  7. Add salt to taste.
