This is a humble little pinto bean. Many, many more just like this one will result in delicious meals.
When you cook the heck out of these little beans and mash them, you then have the basis for refried beans. Add garlic and onion powder, a little oregano, sea salt, and cumin. Drizzle a bit of olive oil. Mash and mash some more (don’t ‘whip.’) Add a tablespoon of water at a time to get a creamy consistency.
Fill into tortillas, taco shells, or eat plain with chopped scallions.
