Add pinto beans, garlic cloves, onion, salt and oregano to a medium saucepan. Cover with about 2 inches of water. Bring water to a boil,
then turn down to a simmer. Cover and cook beans for 1 1/2 hours...up to 2 1/2 hours, or until very tender.
Strain cooked beans from the bean juice and reserve the juice for later.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 4 tbsp lard and the beans. Fry up the beans for about 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
Reduce heat to low and add bean juice to the skillet (should be about 1/2-3/4 cup juice). Begin to smash beans using a potato masher until you reach your desired consistency. If you like your beans very smooth with no chunks of beans, place in a blender and blend until smooth. Add a little bit of water, about 1 tbsp at a time, if your beans are too thick.
Serve refried beans with crumbled cotija cheese (optional)! Enjoy!
