  1. Place turkey bacon, onion, garlic, and jalapeno in a saucepan over medium heat, and cook until the onions are transparent. Turn the heat to low and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the onions have caramelized to a deep brown, about 1 hour.
  2. Pour in the beans, and mash roughly with a potato masher. Pour in 1 cup of chicken stock and bring to a simmer; simmer about 1 hour, stirring occasionally, adding more chicken stock as needed to achieve desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir in cilantro just before serving.

These beans were good - but..... I was skeptical about the bacon in refried beans. I should have followed my instincts. Maybe I shouldn't have followed a few reviewers advice and added in the c...

Wonderful taste! I rinsed the beans first and omitted the salt. Even with doing this I found it tasted fine. I also added a bit of cumin. I will make this many, many more times I am sure!

I followed the recipe exactly, except I forgot to buy fresh cilantro so I added a few tablespoons of dried instead. I really liked this recipe the bacon gave it some great flavor (but in the fut...

Whoa! Salt overload alert! I used about half the salt called for and it was decidedly too salty (as opposed to a little too salty). Easy enough to cut back on but be forewarned! Even if using...
