Rinse and drain a can of pinto beans. You don't need them all, just about a cup and a half. I let them drain for a while then put them on a paper towel to dry.

Side note, I accidentally added the avocado to the lime juice for beans so I went with it and added some spices, mashed it up and ended up with a great avocado dip for tortilla chips.
