Thank you! I am a transplant from the West Coast and I have missed really good Mexican food. I wanted some refried beans and I don't know what possessed me to look up the term Mexican beans. Anyway, the long and short of it is that these are the beans I grew up on. I only used a couple of tbsp of cilantro because I was low and because I quick soaked the beans, they cooked quickly. I added some red bell pepper, but it was just to use it up and I am sure that it would be great just the way you made it. I will steer clear of using the whole bunch of cilantro because I know so many people are cilantro adverse.
This is a wow recipe and very simple. I made it last week and we're making it again tonight.
For those that like fresh flour tortillas but can't get them, Mission now has raw tortillas that you cook on the stove top. They are next to the canned biscuits at the super market. I honestly was blown away by the tortillas. The bean burritos were awesome. For the record, I am in no way affiliated with Mission, I just hate store bought flour tortillas and these were seriously life changing. I even spoke to the manager at Super Target to make sure they don't stop carrying them.
This is a GREAT recipe. I have been talking about these beans, to anyone who will listen, for a week.
