Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Easy and inexpensive, this recipe require a few basic ingredients and a few hours of your time to make delicious, traditional Mexican beans.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Place beans in a large pot with onion, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, garlic, and lard; add enough water to cover with 4 to 5 inches of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook for 2 to 3 hours. Depending on the beans, it may take up to 5 hours. Add more water if necessary.
  • When beans are soft, season to taste with salt.

  • Note:

    You can also refry the beans by melting lard to your taste (the more lard, the tastier) in a heavy skillet. Pour 1/3 of the pot bean mixture into the lard at a time, mashing and incorporating the beans and lard. At the end, you will have 'refried beans' or 'frijoles refritos.'
