REFRIED BEANS

Soak 2 C pinto beans and 1 chopped onion overnight in 2 quarts of water. Cook beans in water until tender (2-3 hours) checking to be sure the beans do not dry out. Add 1 tsp salt (or more to taste) and 1/4 cup oil. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth while still hot.

BEAN BURRITO

Make refried beans using PINTO BEANS. Sprinkle cheese or dehydrated cheese over the beans. Put 2-3 tablespoons bean mixture on a pliable tortilla and sprinkle in a little taco sauce. Roll the tortilla with the ends tucked in to keep the filling in.

I bake them in the oven at 350 F 20 minutes. You can also heat the tortillos in  frypan and  heat  the beans in a saucepan and roll the ingredients in the tortillos to make a buritto if you do not have a oven.
