Black Bean and Chickpea "refried beans"

I made some a bag of dried chick peans (garbanzo beans) the other day and I had no idea what to do with them honestly.  Last night I was making mahi mahi and thought they would be good so here's basically what I did.

2 cans of black beans - 1 drained, 1 not.
1 small yellow onion, chopped finely.
2 Tbs olive oil
1 cup of chickpeas
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp of chopped garlic
sprinkle of salt and pepper

In a medium saucepan saute onion, olive oil and spices until onions are translucent. In your food processer or you can just mash in the pan, mash 1 can of the black beans (with their juice) and the chick peas.  I used the food processer because chick peas are hard to mash.  Combine this mixture with the oil, onion and spices and mix well. Add last can of black beans, drained (you don't need to rinse). Cook until hot.
