Mexican: Refried Beans <T>

Ludo was asking for Mexican recipes...here's my favourite refried
beans recipe. You can roll it up in flour tortillas or put it in corn
tortillas (please somebody, post a successful recipe for these...I've
tried and tried...). 

If you're not sure how to brown or saute stuff in vegetable stock,
take a look at :


* Refried Beans *
                               Serves 2

2 medium onions
2-4 garlic cloves
1 (400g, 16oz) can tomatoes
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp mild chilli powder
2 (400g, 16oz) cans red kidney beans

1. Chop the onions and garlic. Saute them in vegetable stock
until well browned.

2. Add the tomatoes and mash down with a potato masher. Stir in
the cumin and chilli powder, then bring to a simmer and cook for about
5 minutes until the tomatoes begin to disintegrate into a sauce.

3. Drain and rinse the kidney beans. Add most of them to the
pan and mash with the potato masher. Stir in the rest of the beans and
cook for 5 minutes to mingle the flavours.

4. Serve hot with flour tortillas, hot or cold with tortilla
chips, and cold as a sandwich filling.
