    Classic recipe

    Classic Refried Beans

    In traditional Mexican cooking, the bean of choice for refrying is the pinto bean. Seasoned simply with garlic and salt and cooked in pork lard or bacon drippings, these smooth, creamy beans pack big flavor and can be served as a side or component of nearly any Mexican-inspired dish.
