This refried beans recipe is flavorful and healthy version with a little heat minus the lard.  My dear friends Brandy and Eddie Ramos (home cooks) share this simple vegan dish.  It’s a low maintenance Mexican recipe requires a potato masher and a few ingredients that Sun Vista pinto beans, jalapeno, half a small onion, and a little bit of vegetable or canola oil.  Based on your heat tolerance level you can decide to remove seeds for a mild heat, and keep it if you like your beans spicy.  Add some garlic salt to taste. Make it for the Cinco de Mayo festivities this weekend or anytime! Great to use as a side dish, snack with tortilla chips, or add to your burrito concoction.  Provecho!
