Recipe: Refried Beans

A basic staple of cooking re-fried beans. I hemmed and hawed if I wanted to post this recipe because it’s so basic and also because I used to buy re-fried bean (gasp!) instead of making them but since moving to Estonia that is no longer an option so now I make my own. They’re super easy to make and delicious so if you don’t have access to canned ones, give it a go.
