Refried beans are awesome with salsa and yoghurt.
- olive oil
- 2-3 rashers of bacon, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, diced
- 1 tsp whole cumin seeds
- 1 tsp chili powder or paprika (to taste)
- salt and pepper
- 2-3 dollops of Frijoles Negros (see recipe)
Heat some olive oil in a pan and add the chopped bacon, garlic, and spices and fry for a couple of minutes. Ladle in some beans from the pot and mash with a potato masher. Continue to fry and stir for a good 10 minutes, or until the beans begin to brown and stick to the pan.
Serve in tortilla with yoghurt and a good fresh salsa made from diced deseeded tomato, red pepper, chili, garlic, spring onion and lemon juice.
