Pinto Beans In Gravy by James Orndorf

Cochise County, Arizona, US


It’s said that refried beans can either be healthy or good, and there is some truth to that.

This recipe makes a tasty and fairly healthy filling for tacos and burritos, and tastes amazing with rice or refried and served with your breakfast eggs.

Change out the beef soup base for vegetable (I suggest Better Than Bouillon brand), and it easily becomes vegan.

The liquid from the pressure cooker has an intense salty-bean flavor (don’t panic!), but once the beans are added to the gravy, the flavors and the salt level are suddenly perfect (bean magic!).
