MeeMee’s Refried Beans ©
1 cup cooked pinto beans
1/2 cup cooked green lentils
1/4 cup cooked oat groats
Garlic powder to taste
Sea salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
Red chile powder to taste
1 t (or to taste) vegetable Better Than Bouillon
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add water if the mixture is too thick. After it is blended and of the consistency you like, you can either spread it on fried corn tortillas for tostadas, or put in taco shells for tacos adding the other typical ingredients such as tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, meat or chicken, etc. Blended, you don’t even know the green lentils and oat groats are in there. If you prefer, you can transfer the mixture to a cast iron skillet and ‘refry’ before putting on your tostado shells or tacos. This mixture of refried beans can also be put on flour tortillas for bean burritos.

2/3 cup rye flakes, or wheat flakes
