Refried Beans and Bacon

2 cups dried refried beans
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 lb. bacon
shredded cheese
salt to taste

Brown bacon in skillet. Drain and reserve drippings. Crumble bacon. Reconstitute dried refried beans in boiling water. Stir briefly and cover. Let sit 10 minutes. Add half of bacon and 3 tablespoons drippings to beans; stir. Fry the bean mix in remaining bacon drippings. Add salt to taste. To serve, sprinkle remaining bacon and shredded cheese on top of beans.

Testing comment: The flavor was good, but it seems so high fat that I would probably only make it in an emergency and I usually wouldn't have bacon in an emergency.
