I'm ashamed to say that though I LOVE refried beans, this is the first time I've ever made them myself. It's just so easy to buy them in a can, or at a mexican restaurant, that I haven't bothered. But this recipe is simple and it is definitely worth the effort in my mind. I figure my kids are the true test, since they aren't that picky, and even they said they much preferred them. I adapted this recipe from one in Rick Bayless's Mexican Kitchen, and spiced them up a bit. I kept adding and tasting and adding more...and I think the cumin is the most important ingredient I added. If you like cumin, I think you'll find this yummy.
