Refried Beans

Sure you can just open a can of refried beans, but after you try these you’ll never do that again.
We probably eat these beans at least once a week! I cook and freeze extra pinto beans to make this a simple quick recipe for busy nights.
Our favorite recipe for refried beans is Tostadas!
