Strained Beans

4 cups
Frijoles Colados


  • 1 portion basic bean puree, (see basic pureed beans post)
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons safflower or corn oil
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste

To Prepare

  • In a large saute pan over medium heat, pour the oil and heat until hot but not smoking, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the onions and let them saute for 3 to 4 minutes, until they have softened, become translucent, and have started to slightly brown along the edges.
  • Add a cupful of the basic bean puree at a time, over the sauteed onion, and let them season for 3 to 4 minutes.
