The original name for these beans, frijoles refrito, doesn’t mean that the beans are fried twice. They’re simply baked or boiled and then fried with lard or oil. Lard is the better of the two because of its richer flavour, but for those with an aversion to lard, olive oil is fine. I generally use the leftovers from my Baked beans. It’s important that the beans are relatively free of liquid.

Refried beans are great with Tortillas or Quesadillas, or as a dip served with tortilla chips. They can also accompany grilled meat or chicken. Think of this dish as Mexican mash!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g lard
or 100ml olive oil
1/2 quantity Baked beans
100g grated cheddar
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Prepare your barbecue for cooking over a medium heat.
  2. Heat some lard or oil on the barbecue hotplate and add a couple of large spoonfuls of beans. Mash with a scraper and repeat the process until all the beans are cooked, adding a little lard or oil as you go.
  3. Remove the mash to a serving dish.
  4. To serve, sprinkle with the cheese and season with salt and pepper.
