Refried Black Bean Ingredients

black beans, dried
1/2 lb.
oregano, dried
1 tsp

6 tbsp.


  1. In a large pot, COVER the beans with at least two-inches of cold water. ADD oregano and garlic cloves; BRING to a boil over high heat.

  2. REDUCE heat to simmer and COOK until beans are very tender, about one to two hours. SEASON with salt. DRAIN beans, reserving liquid. DISCARD garlic. Should be about three cups cooked beans; if more, MEASURE out three cups and RESERVE the remainder for another use.

  3. In a large sauté pan, HEAT butter over medium-high heat until foaming. ADD minced onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent and lightly golden, about 7 minutes. STIR in beans and cook for 2 minutes. ADD one cup of reserved bean cooking liquid. Using a fork or potato masher, SMASH beans to form a chunky puree.

  4. REDUCE heat to medium and cook, stirring until desired consistency is reached. If refried beans are too dry, ADD more bean cooking liquid, a tablespoon at a time as needed. SEASON with salt.
