    List of Ingredients

    2 cups dried pinto, black, or red kidney beans
    2 onions, finely chopped
    3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1 bay (laurel) leaf
    1 tsp (5 ml) red pepper flakes
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    4 Tbs (60 ml) lard or vegetable oil


    Place the beans in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Add half
    the chopped onion, half the chopped garlic, the bay leaf, and the red
    pepper flakes and bring to a boil over moderate heat. Reduce the heat
    and simmer covered, adding more water as necessary. Cook 1 to 2
    hours, until the beans are soft. The beans should be fairly dry when
    done. Heat the lard or vegetable oil in a skillet and saute the
    remaining onion and garlic until tender but not brown. Add the onion
    mixture to the beans and mash the beans until they are creamy and have
    formed a thick, dry paste. Serves 4 to 6.
