Spicy Refried Beans with Chorizo and Cheese

This recipe has been highly requested, so today i will finally show you how to make some of my favorite refried Beans, I hope you like them as much as I do!!


  • 2 lbs. Cooked Pinto beans
  • Pork Lard (to taste)
  • 300 g Pork chorizo
  • 1-2 Cups Shredded  Asadero cheese
  • 1 can (105 g)  Sliced Pickled Jalapenos
  • Salt to taste

I Cooked the beans in salted water with one onion and four garlic cloves, I cooked them for about 2 hours or until tender.

Place the beans in the blender, and season them with salt to taste.  Add some water, just enough to be able to blend them, and blend on high for about 2-3 minutes or until well blended into a puree.

In a large skillet or pan on medium heat, preheat plenty of pork lard, about half a cup, (more or less to taste), once the fat is hot, now cook the chorizo for about 5 minutes or until well cooked and browned.

Then add in the beans, stir until the beans are well combined with the fat and the chorizo mixture, then lower the heat and continue to cook on low heat until they boil. (Stir frequently to prevent the beans from sticking to the pan.)
Once the beans are boiling, then add in some of the sliced pickled jalapenos, together with some of the vinegar from the pickled jalapenos, and also add in about half a cup of Asadero Cheese, give it a stir until everything is well combined. Then continue to boil for 5 more minutes.

After 5 minutes of continuous boiling, turn off the heat, garnish the beans with more shredded Asadero Cheese, and more pickled jalapenos and that’s it.
