Preparation

This is a quick and easy recipe for making a multi-purpose Tex-Mex style treat, which can be used as filling for celery, lettuce leaves, and tortillas; for a topping for pizza or baked potatoes, for mixing into a tossed salad, or as a dip.

Place the pre-cooked or drained canned pinto beans in bowl suitable for using a potato masher.

Wash, peel, and finely dice the onion, and add to the beans.

Peel and crush the garlic, and add to the beans.

If using a jalapeno pepper, wash, remove the stem, and finely dice or chop, and add to the bowl, or add some hot sauce.

Add the other ingredients, and mash with a potato masher until 1/2 to 3/4 of the pinto beans have been crushed, and mix thoroughly.

Serve and enjoy!
