Expert Tips

  • Refritos, or refried beans, are cooked red or pinto beans that are mashed, then fried. Refried beans, high in fiber, are the best accompaniment to many classic Mexican recipes.
  • Green bell pepper can be used in place of the green onions.
  • While the beans are still very hot, sprinkle shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack over each serving and allow it to melt.
