Note :

Refried beans are the expected side dish at nearly any Mexican, but the smooth mash of beans flavored with onions and garlic is good at nearly any meal. If you do not have Monterey jack cheese on hand, substitute cheddar.

Cooking Tip :

No need to soak the beans overnight when you have a microwave. "Soaking" in the microwave takes only 15 minutes followed by an hour's standing time. The beans are then ready to cook.
