Tex-Mex Pinto Bean Spread
Randy Mayor

Tex-Mex Pinto Bean Spread

This is somewhat similar to the refried beans you find at every Mexican restaurant, only it's much healthier and tastes better, thanks to fresh cilantro, lime, jalapeno, and tomato. The toasted pumpkinseeds (you might find them in a Hispanic grocery labeled as pepitas) add a lovely crunch, but you can leave them out if you want without losing much. The spread also works well in place of refried beans in our Grilled Chicken Tostadas.
