refried pinto beans with chiles

i figured it safest to start easy and familiar, so this is the recipe i chose to kick off my "quest to clean food eating":

3 garlic cloves, minced
1 small onion, diced
2T grapeseed oil
4 cups cooked pinto beans
2 4oz cans chopped green chiles
1t chile powder
1t gound cumin
1/2t sea salt
2T lime juice
chopped fresh cliantro for garnish

in saute pan or dutch oven over medium heat, saute garlic and onion in oil until soft (about 3 minutes). add beans and remaining ingredients except cilantro and saute another 3-4 minutes. with the back of a wooden spoon, gently mash the beans to your desired consistency. i like my finished product to be fairly chunky so i mash only half the ingredients. remove from heat, top with cilantro and serve.

serves 6

i served this with broiled tilapia and guacamole.
