Refried Beans

for 2 persons
I like to make a version of refried beans to put in burritos.

Make a quick tomato salsa to put in the burritos as well by finely chopping some fresh tomatoes, a bit of onion, some garlic if you want, some fresh coriander (cilantro) if you've got some and mixing it all together with fresh lime or lemon juice and salt/black pepper.
1-2 medium onions, depending on how much you like onion
2-4 garlic cloves
1 can (400g, 16oz) tomatoes
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp mild chilli powder
2 can (2 x 400g/16oz) red kidney beans, or 1 can each of red kidney and

1. Chop the onions and garlic.
Saute them in vegetable stock until well browned (see here if you don't know how to do this).
Or do it in oil if you prefer.

2. Add the tomatoes and mash down with a potato masher.
Stir in the cumin and chilli powder, then bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes until the tomatoes begin to disintegrate into a sauce.

3. Drain and rinse the kidney beans.
Add most of them to the pan and mash with the potato masher.
Stir in the rest of the beans and cook for 5 minutes to mingle the flavours.

4. Serve hot with flour tortillas, hot or cold with tortilla chips, and cold as a sandwich filling.
