Refried Pinto Beans

Recipe from: itstime4cake
Servings: 4 to 6

My hubby made these for me once and I will never go back to eating refried beans out of a can. The bacon bits in this make it absolutely yummy.

3 slices bacon
2 15 ounce cans pinto beans
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ cup Mexican blend cheese
salt and pepper—taste first before adding salt due to the bacon
cheese, to garnish, optional

Fry bacon in a medium sized skillet until just crispy. Remove bacon from the skillet and set aside until cool enough to break into tiny pieces. Pour off most of the bacon grease, leaving the bottom of the skillet well coated. Return the bacon pieces back to the skillet on low heat. Using a slotted spoon, scoop the beans into the pan. Reserve liquid. Add garlic and onion powder. Mash all contents, adding reserved liquid until desired consistency is reached. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir in cheese.
