Fat Free 'Refried' Beans Recipe
You can make as much of this as you want, divide it up and freeze it. A half pound of dry pintos makes about a grocery store can amount of refried beans. Soak desired amount beans for at least overnight. The next day cook them on the stove slowly with plenty of water. Drain out most of the water. (You might want to hold onto about half a cup to be sure that you get the desired consistency.) Use a potato masher and mash, mash, mash. Add salt to taste. That is it. You can add butter or olive oil for true refried beans. Make sure that you don't make them too dry because they do thicken up alot.
