Double Batch Smashed Beans

I call this ‘Double Batch’ for two reasons.  The first, I’m taking two beans made in two separate ways and smashing them together.  The second, I like quirky names.  So therefore Double Batch Smashed Beans it is!  A delicious side dish for your burrito and taco nights.

The steps for this are ridiculously easy.  So instead of just opening a plain old can of refried beans and stopping there why not just go a few steps further?  Might as well, right?  Melt 1 Tbs butter.  Sautee 1/2 the onions, 1/2 the tomatoes and the garlic.  Add both cans of beans to the pan.   Smash with a potato smasher to combine.  Bonus if you have any angst on the day these are prepared you can take it out on the beans.  Smash it, smash it good!

Cook for around 10 minutes stirring every few minutes until completely heated through. Place in an oven proof dish.  Sprinkle with cheese then place in 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted.

Top with tomatoes and green onions.  Now you have a lovely side dish that was so easy to make.  Maybe pair it with my Blackened Chicken Green Chili Enchiladas or Stuffed Hatch Green Chiles.  And here you are….

    Oh, my son would love these. He likes to make homemade burritos, nachos, tacos, you name it, and he always wants some type of beans to add to it. This is perfect!
