  • Drain and rinse beans. Add enough fresh water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 hours. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water, and rinse.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add beans and salt. Fry until beans are very soft, stirring and mashing frequently, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler on low heat.

  • Spread an equal amount of beans on each slice of bread and sprinkle queso on top. Place bread slices on a baking sheet.

  • Broil until beans are warmed and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes. Remove from oven and top with chile-garlic sauce.
