“Refried” Beans



  • 2 cups dried pinto beans (presoaked)
  • 1/4 of a red onion, diced
  • 1 tsp Dak’s SW Seasoning (or your favorite taco seasoning)
  • 1 tsp Cumin.
  • 2 Tbsp light sour cream


Put softened beans and onion in a small saucepan.

Cover with water (if you have just soaked your beans, use enough of that water to cover).

Bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer and put a lid on the pan; Cook for about 45 minutes, or until most of the liquid is gone.

Add seasonings, mix well. With a potato masher, mash up the beans to the desired consistency.

I like a few pieces of beans left.

When ready to serve, stir in sour cream.

The only sodium in this is from the sour cream.
