Directions

  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.

I used organic black beans and organic chicken broth in this recipe. I didn't need to wait an hour for my onions to caramelize, mine were good to go in about 20 minutes. I always drain and rinse my beans--because I do this, I knew to add just a little more chicken broth. This is one of the BEST refried beans we've ever had. After tasting it, I regretted right away not making double. Luscious is right.

This is one awesome recipe! There are only a couple of things I changed here; first, I cooked the bacon and onions in a little bit of olive oil with a pinch of sugar, and put in about triple the garlic. Also, I didn't add the cilantro at the end, because it tasted perfect without it. And it only took me about an hour from start to finish. This is a recipe I'll be making often. Thanks!

I needed to use up some bacon I had around so I used regular bacon instead of turkey bacon, but the recipe was DELICIOUS! The flavors in the beans were great. I made it as a side dish for enchiladas and spanish rice and it was a perfect complement.
