ever cook with lard?

today i did.
the "sister wives" and i got together again for our monthly domestic activity, and this time we made burritos to freeze. we were a fierce group of mama, four pregnant sisters, and a sweet family friend jennifer. jennifer is a genius in the kitchen and she taught us how to cook the beans and make everything just right. we filled our tortillas with fresh homemade refried pinto beans, lots of cheese, onions and jalapeno's. we made a couple hundred between all of us...
i'm sure they'll get gobbled up quick.
thanks for a fun day girls!!

nadia, after you cook the beans the first time and soften them, you then cook or fry them in a little bit of lard... i discovered that is why they call them "refried" beans... who knew?
