Refried Beans



Canned refried beans are either high in fat or in sodium and usually both.

I found a receipe that uses dried beans and has very little fact and no sodium.

  • I too, love refried beans but making them is more than I want to do so I use fat free beans and add a little milk or water to each can I open,and then freeze the remains in a freezer(duh)bag,flatten the bag so they don't take up much room in the freezer then I can break off a piece of beans when I need them.I usually add garlic and a few other spices to liven them up. - by CLAYLADY001
  • I make my own beans too, but when time is an issue, canned beans are great. Just be sure to pick the ones with no lard. - by KELKER
