This is a picture of my lunch. Corn tortilla chips topped with refried beans (see recipe below), roasted red and green peppers, onions (I roast a bunch of vegetables at the beginning of the week to use in all sorts of recipes; they are great to have on hand.), and topped with cheese. After this photo, I sprinkled on some cilantro, and put a glop of guacamole on top.
I love refried beans, but hate all the stuff that goes in there, plus the time it takes. This is my favorite way to make them, and it takes less than 2 minutes.
"Cheater" Refried Beans
1 can beans
BBQ sauce, salsa, or lime juice and garlic
Mash beans with fork. Add liquid of choice and stir until you get the consistency of refried beans.
