About this recipe: Pinto beans are simmered with onions, tomato, chilli powder and vegetable stock, then mashed. It's a quick and easy way to make your own refried beans for any Mexican dish! These taste great in tortillas with avocado, cheese, lettuce, salsa and soured cream.

Not a bad recipe. I wouldn't use as much liquid as in the recipe and it does need seasoning. - 17 Mar 2009


Mine's turned out a little bit bland, could have done with some more flavour I think, but made quite a nice chunky (and low-fat!) dip. - 22 Sep 2012
