Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped Olive Oil, Extra Virgin, 1 tbs Water, tap, .25 cup Cheddar Cheese, .5 cup, shredded pinto beans with jalapeno peppers, 1 can Garlic Pepper, black
Add onions and olive oil to a wide, sturdy (cast iron) pan on medium high heat. Cook onions until translucent. Add drained beans and water to the pan. Using a potato masher, mash the beans in the pan, while you are cooking them, until they are a rugh puree. Add more water if necessary to keep the fried beans fro getting too dried out. Add garlic and pepper to taste (and salt if desired). Add cheese (optional). When beans are heated through and cheese is melted the beans are ready to serve.
This was an easy and very good recipe. Pinto beans are so good for you and I like that this uses olive oil (the good stuff) and NOT lard or something. The dish was a hit for everybody that was eating!
This is truly a simple and hearty side dish. I did not have beans with jalepenos, so I used plain pinto beans. Used only 1/2 cup chopped onions and 2 cloves garlic, and it was really good. Thanks for sharing. This will be a staple for us from now on!
