Mexican Refried Beans

If you would have asked me to cook Mexican dishes before two years, definitely i would have replied that i dont know anything about Mexican dishes coz  i never cooked them at home before.. I got an opportunity to taste their wonderful tacos,burritos and quesadillas in a famous Mexican restaurant here in Paris,since that day i have completely fallen in love with those quick and easy foods..I never stopped making myself many wonderful Mexican dishes till now at home, we love their foods thoroughly anytime of the day without any hesitation..Refried beans is one of the most important dish in Mexican cuisine, its very quick and easy to make and they tasted super delicious and nutritious..I prepared this refried beans with red kidney beans well known as rajma beans eventhough this refried beans are prepared usually with pinto beans, i prepared this quick refried beans with onions,garlic, jalapeno peppers along with cumin powder and served them topped with some grated cheese..You can also use pinto beans,white beans or a combination of pinto and rajma beans for making this nutritious refried beans..


2cups Dry rajma (soaked overnite &cooked)
1no Onion (big &chopped)
1no Jalapeno pepper (chopped finely)
2nos Garlic cloves (minced)
1/2tsp Cumin powder
Salt
Pepper powder or red chilly flakes
Olive oil
Grated cheese (for topping)

Heat the olive oil in a pan, add the chopped onions,jalapeno peppers and saute until the onions turns transculent, add the minced garlic cloves, cook for few minutes..Now add the cooked rajma beans with their cooked liquid and mash them with a potato masher, cook everything simmer with pepper powder, salt,cumin powder..Put off the stove once the mixture turns thick..

Serve warm topped with grated cheese or with tortilla chips..
