Personal Notes:
I hesitate to call them re-fried beans, but that’s what I know them as.  This recipe is as simple as pie.  Again, this recipe is inspired to become more self-dependent and not reliant on the grocery store and canned goods.  Be sure you have yourself a good pressure cooker and some nice organic kidney beans.  Enjoy!

Kidney beans befor blending
2 C. Dry Kidney Beans 1-2 cloves garlic
4 tsp. cumin, 2 tsp. paprika, 1 tsp. cayenne Salt/pepper to taste

Begin the night before to soak your beans.  The next morning, drain the water in which they were soaked, rinse and throw beans into the pressure cooker.  Cover with fresh water, close and lock lid and cook under pressure for 8-10 min.

Once cooked, take the lid off, and pour entire contents (water and all) into your food processor.  Add your cumin and spices, plus garlic, salt and pepper.  Be sure you have enough liquid.  I’d say, 1 part liquid, 4 parts beans.  Turn on and blend until it’s a puree and smooth.
