Day 319: Cinnamon Refried Beans

Yield: 2 cups beans
Time (Start to Finish): 15 min

1 can refried beans
½ yellow onion
olive oil
salt and pepper
cinnamon to taste

1. Cook the onion in olive oil on med until it is soft and cooked
2. Add the can of beans and stir to combine, heating through
3. Add a touch of salt and pepper and cinnamon until you can taste it, usually about 2 Tbsp. serve warm

Rating: 3.5 strawberries
Notes: I gave this a low rating because I didn’t do too much to it. I could have made the pinto beans from scratch, but really it is quite tasty. Where would you serve these? At a 4th of july party, any type of bbq. The cinnamon is a cool twist on classic pinto beans, so I really suggest trying it. It is much tastier than it may appear. I wouldn’t really use this if you were making burritos, but as a side it is perfect. They are quick when in a pinch, I am in a rush today, hah!
