Refried Chipotle & Lemon Pinto Beans

Two kinds of peppers add an extra kick to bean dip.

Chipotle and jalapeño peppers give these classic refried beans a dose of heat, and the lemon juice adds a touch of citrus.

2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 chipotle pepper, de-seeded and minced
1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup small-diced onions
1 15-ounce can refried pinto beans
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, for garnish

What You Do:

  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat coconut oil and vegetable oil until hot and simmering. Add peppers and onions and sauté until onions began to caramelize. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add pinto beans and mix well. Add cumin and salt, and garnish with lemon juice.
