Refried beans

By May 22, 2020 ,

I love refried beans, happily eat a bowl all on their own or as a side with some good tacos. This is also great as a party dish topped with salsa and cheese forming the basis for a tasty dip. I cook this dish quite often and get to have it all to myself as my other half hates beans. 

400g tinned black beans
1 onion finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1 bay leaf
1 red chilli
1 green chilli
5g Mexican oregano
5g tomato puree
15g chipotle in adobo
10g coriander leaves finely chopped (hold some back for garnish)
70g chorizo finely chopped
30g creme fraiche
20g pork fat
5ml lime juice
Salt and pepper

On a low heat melt the pork fat and fry off the onions, chillies and garlic for about 10 minutes until soft and glossy
Add the tomato puree and cook for a further 5 minutes
Add the chorizo and cook until it starts to release its fat
Next, add the beans, oregano, bay leaf and chipotle, stir to combine and cook for 20 minutes
To finish add the lime juice, coriander and creme fraiche and stir though
Season to taste with the salt and pepper
Garnish with the rest of the coriander
