Refried black beans tucked in a tortilla with a fresh tomato salsa is easy comfort food when you only have a few minutes to make a meal. My favorite refried black beans are from Eden Foods. For a change, try a mango salsa in place of the tomato salsa; it adds a lovely natural sweetness that contrasts well with the earthy black bean flavor.
