Joy's Refried Beans

Submitted by: KOOLCHIK

Introduction

This is my take on refried beans - I use dried black beans and soak them - if I am short on time I substitute in 4 cans of black beans with liquid, but I omit the salt.
The chipotle pepper creates heat (do not minced - leave whole - for more heat add 2 chipolte peppers and or 1tsp red chillies - ground. This freezes well.
