	You must have read my mind!  Thnak you.  I was thinking about
asking how to male homemade *refried* beans so I could avoid the lard in
store bought cans.  Last night I made tacos for the fam and It wasn't until
i remembered about lard and bacon fat being  in the beans that I realized I
had goofed.  Anyway...it won't happen again.  But I think I found a cool
recipe anyway...just cook your beans and add 1/2 cup of chunky salsa and
heat thouroughly, then build your burrito with whatever you want...lettuce,
tomatoes, ff cheese, ff sour cream..MmmMmmm Good :)
