  • 2 cups cooked Peruano beans
  • 1 Tablespoon lard (or oil)
  • salt to taste


  • Add 1 Tablespoon lard to a skillet on medium heat
  • Add the cooked Peruano beans and smoosh with a potato masher (or the back of a spatula)
  • Cook for 4-8 minutes or until you have the desired consistency
  • Salt to taste


Since we are using cooked beans it takes just a few minutes over medium heat to turn them into refried beans.
You can always add bean broth or water to thin them out if necessary.
You could also use the cooked Peruanos to make this easy, delicious Mexican Bean Soup.
