Re-fried Bean Dip

Re-fried Bean Dip

this is a quick and easy mexican dip that goes really well with tortilla chips. i have used a shortcut in that i added canned re-fried beans (old el-paso brand), but if u have the time (and patience!) by all means use home made re-fried beans with cooked and mashed pinto beans.
