They are terrific. You can buy plenty of the canned type, but if you make your own you will not be disappointing. Here is a recipe I had much success with:
In a large Crock Pot add:
1/2 a bag of dried pinto beans
Fill half way up (at least) with chicken broth (no added sugars)
A small diced onion
2 minced garlic cloves
salt & pepper
2 T. olive oil
1 T. ground cumin
1 diced jalapeno pepper
Cook on low for 8-10 (or more) hours and add more broth 3/4 of the way through if it's getting too dry.
When finished cooking, mash the pot with a potato masher, or immersion blender. I like mine on the soupy side, so add hot broth if needed.
I think refried beans are a staple here for Mexican food and a few fast food restaurants here like Taco Bell in the U.S. I love it with cheese and salsa (before SCD) so now i don't really eat it that much. But i love pinto beans.
I've discovered i like black beans the best with seasoning and a little cut up tomato and warmed in the microwave for a fast addition to my meals. Or i add it to whatever i'm cooking if it'll work with what's cooking. Everyone's tastes are different though, so you might want to try a small portion of the refried beans before you make a big pot of beans and not like it at all! Do you have canned pinto beans available where you live? if you do you could try them first to see if you'd like them first.
