Did you mean pinto beans or refried beans they are different.

It's actually supposed to be pinto beans. Thanks for catching that.

Perhaps I am just not seeing it but how much oil needs to go in the pot?

Thanks for stopping by. I always try to use the least amount of oil as possible. One tsp and stirring constantly to avoid sticking should be fine. If you want to cut out oil all together you could try sauteeing in a few teaspoons of veggie broth too.

This turned out like a soup not a chili. Put it on the stove to reduce the water volume. Would reduce the water if made again.
