Big Papa Ed's Quick and Tasty Frijoles

“My Mom use to make great refied beans. She would make it from scratch and they tasted like it. Now theres no way I can eat canned refried beans, there terrible! Nowdays I don't alway have time to cook things from scratch, so from watching and cooking with my Mom I developed this recipe using canned pinto or black beans. My kids swear by it and they now refuse to eat canned refri's.”
