Stop Getting Cans From The Store And Make This Instead!

These are fantastic in so many different recipes. Whenever I get one that calls for refried beans, I don’t even consider using the canned version anymore. I just pick up some pinto beans and make these at home. I pretty much always have all of the rest of the ingredients on hands so there is not much extra work or money involved. Me and the family prefer these over the other kind in every situation. Try them out on your family and see. You’ll find out what I’m talking about.
