Refried Beans

Katie:  I decided to try making refried beans to go along with the enchiladas I made.  They don’t look very pretty, but they were easy to make and tasted good.  Here’s how I made them:

Refried Beans (adapted from Closet Cooking)

1/2 tsp. olive oil
1 small onion (chopped)
1 clove garlic (chopped)
1 (19 ounce) can kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
* water

1. Heat the oil in a pan.
2. Add the onion and garlic and saute until tender, about 3-5 minutes.
3. Add the beans, chili powder and cumin and cook until warm.
4. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and blend with a hand mixer.  Add warm water by the tablespoon until you get them to the consistency that you want.
