We love Mexican food in our house and I make it quite often. We always have cooked pinto beans on hand for refried beans (here’s an old post about how I make mine and freeze them – they are a wonderful freezer staple if you are into freezer cooking!).
Refried beans are pretty much a staple in our house. We eat a lot of mexican food and it is a must have, side dish to every meal. When we get low, I always make up another big ol’ pot of them, because running out, is never an option.
