"There is no such thing as guilt-free eating." -Dan Barber, Chef
This is a riff on traditional refried beans with great Southern flavors of smoky paprika, sage, and hot sauce. Most refried beans contain a lot of lard even though it's not really necessary. Slow cooking the beans breaks down the great quality carbohydrates in the legumes and helps create the great creamy texture that you crave in refried beans without all the fat. These make a great side dish with a simple roasted chicken breast or Sage Mustard Pork Tenderloin.

|1 large||onion (minced)|
|2 15 ounce can||no salt added black eyed peas (drained and rinsed)|
|1 Tbsp||hot sauce|

Place the olive oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.
Add the onion and cook for about 3 minutes.
Add the black beans, hot sauce, water, paprika, salt, sage, and pepper. Stir well.
Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Using a fork, spoon, or potato masher, press the black beans occasionally as they cook.
As the beans cook, add additional water to keep the beans from getting too dried out.
Stir and continue to mash the beans.
After about 20 - 25 minutes the refried beans will begin to thicken up.
