Ultimate Refried Beans
Contrary to pop belief, refried beans are non called refried beans because they’re refried. As it turns out the get upward truly translates to good fried, equally inward so good fried, beans are reduced to a molten mash. And what a delicious squeeze it is.
I don’t intend I would ever sit down downwards to consume only a bowl of refried beans, but they brand everything they’re served with, on, or in, infinitely better. Just equally long equally yous role lard. In my opinion, using rendered pork fatty for these produces the ultimate refried beans.
Many folks insist on using bacon, together with it’s e’er difficult to combat against using bacon, but for me that smoky flavor, equally delicious equally it is, only overwhelms the balance of the ingredients. Besides that enthusiastic recommendation, last certain to gustation for seasoning at the end.
Since nosotros don’t develop the beans amongst salt, it’s going to accept only about fairly generous seasoning later. In fact, whatever reviews less than five-stars volition last the effect of people nether salting, together with so unfairly blaming me. So, whether these are going on your Super Bowl nachos, or only inward your regular recipe rotation, I truly hit promise yous laissez passer this a endeavour soon. Enjoy!
