Drain kidney beans reserving 1/2 cup of liquid. Pour the beans into a bowl and mash with a potato masher.
Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute. Pour in mashed beans and turn down the heat to low. Stir frequently. Add the chilies and continue to cook until the beans have reached the desired consistency. You may need to add some of the reserved liquid if the mixture gets too thick.
