Quick & Easy Refried Beans
Is it possible to make canned refried beans taste delicious? You bet your sweet Rosarita it is. Whenever I make tacos or fajitas or any kind of Mexican dish, these are the beans I make to serve as a side dish. They are delicious - so delicious that I've had to go from using just one can of refried beans to using two because my husband wanted more.
Here's how to make the magic happen:
2 16-ounce cans of refried beans (I use whatever brand is on sale)
1 1/2 Tbs bacon grease (Or whatever oil you have. Please start saving that bacon grease!)
1 tsp minced jarred garlic (OR 2 garlic cloves minced)
1 Tbs dried minced onions
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
2 oz. cream cheese
Throw everything in a pot or skillet. Heat it up enough for the cream cheese and bacon grease to melt. Stir it up. Serve warm.
