I'd planned to make a big pot of red beans and rice but plans changed. Since I'd already soaked the beans, I went ahead and cooked them. I'm making chile verde tonight and I'm wondering if anyone has every subbed red beans for pintos in their refried beans? Since I wasn't sure what I'd be using them for, I kept seasonings very generic so there's nothing in them I wouldn't use in refried beans. I tried searching online but all of the hits turned out to be for refried kidney beans, not actual small red beans.
