Yesterday I put two pounds of pinto beans on to soak overnight and today I cooked them along with an onion in my pressure cooker for fifty-five minutes, so they would be good and soft enough to make refried beans.
Afterwards I scooped some out and mashed them with my potato masher to make them into refried beans.
Then I warmed a tortilla in the microwave and place some beans on each tortilla.
Afterwards I added the toppings each person wanted. On mine I placed cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and taco sauce. Other good toppings would be onions, black olives, and jalapenos. Even some Mexican rice would be good in one of these.
Then I rolled them up...
They look as good as anything from Taco Bell, right?! My daughter says once I duplicate the cheese sauce on the Taco Bell burritos I can say that. LOL
I didn't use all of the bean broth, so I made sure to save it as I can use it for other things later like a soup base.
My daughter even made brownies for us to enjoy afterwards.
That's what's for dinner at our house tonight. What's for dinner at your house?
