Refried Beans


1 pound of dry pinto beans.
2 Tbs Lard
1 Tbs Bruno's Carne Asada Mix


Rinse beans clean and set them aside
Bring 1/2 gallon of water to a rolling boil on high heat.
Add cleaned and washed beans.
Allow to boil for 15 minutes
Reduce to medium-high heat.
Allow to boil for 2 - 2 1/2 hours. Add warm water as necessary to keep beans covered.

Near the end of the cooking time the sauce will begin to thicken.
When the beans are soft add 1 Tbs. of Bruno's.
Stir until well mixed.
Remove from heat when sauce is thick.

In a 5 quart pan add 2 tbsp. of lard. You can use vegetable oil but your beans will not be authentic and will lose flavor

When the lard is very hot, add the beans 1 ladle at a time with the sauce, do not drain the beans. When one ladle starts to sizzle, add on more ladle. Add one ladle only after the previous one is sizzling.

After all of the beans are added, refry for 5 minutes.

Serve whole or mashed.
