 Refried Beans
 
 1) Soak Pinto Beans overnight in water and then pour off the water and
 rinse continually until water is clear
 2) Barely cover Beans with water, bring to a boil and simmer approx 3 hours!
 3) Sautee lots of fresh garlic and chopped onions and add to the beans,
 Also add Bay Leaves and Cumin (lots)
 Now for the trick:
 4) When Beans are tender add salt to taste, remove from heat and mash them
 good with a potato masher etc... Then (remember the trick for making fluffy
 potatoes?
 Well it works for pintos as well) put the mashed beans into a deep casserol
 dish and bake covered in the oven for approx 1 hour on 350 degrees.
