This mashed beans recipe has been used in Mexico for generations, according to my stepmom 🙂 Absolutely delicious, and work great with so many meals (a list of suggested pairings is below).

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb pinto beans
  • water
  • 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • salt
  • garlic (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Fill a large pot halfway with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Sort the beans on a tray and throw out any rocks, dirt clumps, and bad beans.
  3. Put the beans in the boiling water, cover with a lid, and turn the heat off. Soak for about 30-50 minutes.
  4. Drain and rinse beans.
  5. Once again, fill the pot halfway with water. Put the beans in the water and bring to a boil. Cook on high heat for 10-15 minutes. You may need to tilt the lid so some of the steam can escape. Stir occasionally.
  6. Turn the heat to medium heat (simmer/boil) and cook for two or more hours, until very soft.
  7. You may choose to scoop out some of the extra water at this point, depending on how thick or thin you want your beans to turn out.
  8. Add 1-2 spoonfuls of olive oil.
  9. Mash the beans while they are boiling until your desired consistency. Add salt to taste.
