As with all local dishes, there are a few variations when it comes to adding ingredients to the sweetened refried bean mixture. Since this is our independence month, I wanted to try making rellenitos myself so we could share the recipe with all of you and add it to our Guatemalan Recipes Collection. I also wanted to try the variation of adding unsweetened cocoa to the bean mixture, I think it would give it more depth of flavor. If I had made these for myself, I would have added some cayenne pepper to the bean mixture too, if you like food with a little kick… by all means try adding a couple of pinches of cayenne pepper. Be careful, this stuff can be very hot!
