People in Oaxaca hardly ever eat guacamole and tortilla chips as a starter dish (and if they do, you best believe it is sprinkled with a few chapulines). One famous dip at every party, however, is these frijoles refritos, some of the best refried beans you’ll ever have in your life. At weddings, Oaxaqueños usually serve barbacoa, but every table will have a platter of refried beans paired with a big pile of chips so you can get your appetite going before the main course arrive
