Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Fixed Up Refried Beans

When I shared my easy red chile for burritos, I mentioned the refried beans that I make along with it.
I promised to tell you all how I do those, so here it is!

The great thing about these beans, besides being really easy and really yummy, is if you add a little more cheese, they also make a great bean dip!

Fixed Up Refried Beans
What You Need:
A 16oz can of refried beans
1/2-1 jalapeno, finely chopped
1/2 cup monterey jack cheese (1 cup for a cheesy bean dip)
1 TB butter or margarine

What You Do:

  1. Melt the butter in a small pot on med- med high heat. Add the jalapeno, and cook until tender and aromatic. 
  2.  Add the beans. Stir well and heat through. Reduce heat.
  3. Stir in the cheese until melted.
  4. Serve hot.
The jalapeno adds a really nice flavor. When you saute it, it mellows out, so there really isn't a lot of heat to it. My 1 1/2 year old loves these beans!



  1. Oh that sounds good! I love Mexican food. Adding butter and cheese makes almost everything taste better!

  2. Looks good! I'm with Patricia-butter and cheese make everything yummy.

  3. YUM! I love jalapeƱo in just about anything!

    1. I love it too... especially when it's roasted or at least cooked up a bit first. I think it brings out such a nice flavor.

  4. Sounds delicious!! Thanks for sharing at Sharing Saturday!!
