Recipe: Halloween Surprise Refried Beans

A surprisingly good post-Halloween variation on my regular refried beans.

Make refried beans with black beans, using the following modifications to give it a rich mole flavor.

  1. Add 0.5 tsp cinnamon when adding the oregano to the onion and cumin.
  2. Chop 3 fun-sized chocolate candy bars in the food processor along with the rest of the refried beans.

Serve in soft-shelled tacos or as burritos. This is rich enough that salsa and cheese shouldn’t be necessary, but fresh lettuce and tomatoes are a nice addition. For chocolate, I used two Nestle Crunch bars and one Milky Way.
