So most recipes call for mashing anasazi beans. I jazzed this up a bit, otherwise they would taste just like regular refried beans made with inexpensive pinto beans.
These still taste a heck of a lot like pintos.
Fancy Refried Anasazi Beans
- 3 cups anasazi beans soaked in cold water overnight
- 1 dried ancho chili
- 1 cup chopped green onion
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 2 cups greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp bacon fat
Tear chili into small pieces and add to soaking beans. Cook beans over a low simmer until extremely soft refilling water if necessary. Mash beans. In a large saute pan heat fat and cook onions until soft. Add beans and chicken stock mix well and simmer on low until thickened. Season with salt and pepper and add yogurt. Continue to cook until thick again serve hot.
