I was contacted by Johnny W. from San Antonio after he saw my Hot Sauce video on Chow.com. After emailing a few times, he asked me for a refried bean recipe made without lard, which I am happy to share today. You can easily make it spicier by adding more jalapenos. Top with cheese, cilantro, black olives, sour cream and/or any other favorite topping and serve with warm chips.

Ingredients

  • 25 oz can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped and divided
  • 2 Tbsp EVOO, divided
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped finely
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh oregano, chopped finely

Preparation

  1. Put beans in a medium pot and cover with water. Add 1/2 chopped onion, 1 Tbsp EVOO, jalapeno, salt and oregano. Heat over medium heat and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from heat and drain over a bowl to also save the liquid. Put both liquid and drained beans in separate air-tight containers and refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to marry.
  3. The next day, in the same medium pot, heat remaining Tbsp EVOO. Add remaining 1/2 of chopped onion and saute over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Add half the beans and half the liquid and mash with a potato masher. Add remaining beans and liquid and mash again, until desired consistency is reached (I like to leave some chunks of beans). Cook for another 20-25 minutes, until most of the liquid is evaporated - again, until desired consistency (I like mine a little creamy and soupy). Serve warm with chips.
