That sounds delicious. The Mexican food chef Rick Bayless usually suggests using chipotle Colorados (when chipotle chiles are required) but I've never been able to find them, even online. I even tried to find the seeds to grow some myself - alas, no luck. I cook a lot and Mexican food is one of the kinds of food I like to cook. But I've not been able to master refried beans (or tortillas for that matter but this thread has more to do with beans). I've tried lard, bacon drippings, cooking the heck out of them first, various spices but the taste and texture never quite impress; it's a shame when canned foods taste better than home made (and refried beans from the can are tasty, sometimes I take a bite even before I heat them). Next time I make them I'm going to try epazote and chopping them in the food processor with stock after cooking (but before frying).

I'll have to figure out how not to be a red square with curvy white lines going through it. I only look like that part of the time so it's not an entirely accurate rendering.

I'll look forward to reading it. When I was a kid my mother wouldn't let me watch "the Day After" TV movie. If my domestic partner the cat finds my taste in movies and books objectionable he hasn't mentioned it. Anyhow, he can be bribed with food.
