Easy Fat Free Refried Beans

My dear neighbor, who dearly needs our prayers for health right now, once told me that she makes a big pot of pinto beans every week.  She, a breast cancer survivor, eats those beans all week long as a great source of fiber.  In her honor, I dug out this recipe I have had in my recipe file for ten years but had never gotten around to making.  They were so delicious and effortless that I may have a new monthly money-saving side dish for our family. 
These beans not only make a great side dish, they are great as a filling for burritos or on top of chips for bean nachos. 

1 pound dried pinto beans, rinsed and drained
4 cloves of garlic, peeled but left whole
3 tsp. salt

1.  Put beans, garlic and salt in a large stock pot.  
2.  Cover with 2 quarts of water.
3.  Bring to a boil.
4.  Reduce heat, cover and simmer on medium-low for 2 hours.
5.  Mash beans and garlic recover and simmer for another 30 minutes, stirring and mashing now and then until softened and to your desired consistency.
