Refried Beans

This is again a recipe from For the love of food who is my partner in Taste&Create.This is a Columbian refried beans and can be served with Tortillas or Arepas.Click here for the original recipe.I did not have pinto beans, so I substituted with Red Kidney beans.To make it a bit more spicy, I have added red pepper flakes as well.Here's the recipe:


Red Beans:1/2 cup
Carrot:1 medium
Onion:1 medium
Red Pepper Flakes(Optional):1 tspn
Salt&Pepper:as per taste


Soak the beans overnight and cook in a pressure cooker adding salt.

Heat oil in a wide pan,add red pepper flakes and then chopped onions and carrots.Saute for a minute and add the cooked beans.Mix well and adjust salt and add pepper. Cook on low fire for 10-15 minutes till done.If needed mash a little bit. Serve with white rice,tortillas,Arepas(Columbian flatbread) etc.

This is my second entry to Taste & Create by Nicole.
