In my quest for "real" mexican food yesterday, I went to the store with every intention of getting a can of refried beans. Oh HE|| no when I read the label - WHOA NELLIE on the sodium!!! So, without having time to soak some pintos, I bought two cans of low sodium, organic pintos and rinsed them like crazy when I got home. Then I put them in a saucepan and added diced onion, jalapeno, some cumin, chili powder, and cayenne. A little water for consistency and VOILA :) Didn't want a bunch, just enough to spread a little on one of my workable cheats - a plain corn tortilla (these are small, 60 cals, each and only 5 mg. of sodium, 1 gr fat) Then top it with a little home made salsa, a few crumbles of spiced sirloin and some shredded lettuce. MMMMM! The leftovers will last me easily this whole week. And this always tastes better than anything I can buy pre-made!!!
