Beans ala Blender (refried)

Pre-soak 2 cups pinto beans overnight and then cook at med-low temp until soft (or could substitute appropriate amount no salt/no fat canned pintos).

Add while cooking:
1 1/2 cups chopped onoin and 3 cloves garlic, crushed--even better is you fry these first in a bit of water or veg broth
1/4 cup tomato paste

When beans are soft and above adds have sort of had time to get friendly put mixture in food processor or blender and add:
1/4 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp black pepper
2tsp ground cumin

Blend until smooth and grab a toasted tortilla!
Yields 5 cups

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
