If the word re-fried gives you a scare, worry not, this famous Mexican dish is not refried at all! ‘Re’ in Mexican simply means ‘very’ or ‘thoroughly’, so this dish is simply a sumptuous preparation of cooked beans Saute thoroughly with onions and tongue-tickling spice powders. Myriad ingredients added when cooking the rajma, such as tomatoes, green chillies and garlic give it a saucy consistency and a finger-licking flavour as well. Refried Beans can be refrigerated once done, and enjoyed with any meal, from breakfast and dinner, to a quick snack anytime you feel hungry, just as they do in Mexico. Serve with Taco Shells or just wrap in Flour Tortillas with a salad and Salsa .

I spread the Mexican Refried beans and some grated cheese on one half of the tortillas, folded them to form a semi circle, placed them on a quesadilla basket and grilled them from both the sides on a charcoal barbeque. Served them brushed with buttery lemon, garlic and herb sauce. There was salsa and sour cream also to go with it.

Mexican Re-fried beans are tasty and a great source of protein. They are good to eat on their own or stuff them into your tortillas. I would drop the butter and make them a lot more healthier.
