Adjust the heat of these beans by upping the spice level of your preferred salsa.


Preheat oven to 450°.

Cook bacon in a saucepan until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Drain all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from pan and increase heat to high.

Stir in salsa and boil until liquid is nearly evaporated, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Purée half the beans, bacon, and salsa in a food processor. Transfer mixture to a bowl and fold in remaining whole beans.

Spread refried beans in a 2-qt. baking dish, cover with foil, and bake 15 minutes. Top beans with queso fresco and cilantro.
