Healthy Refried Beans


Listen homie, if you’re looking for a mean refried bean this ain’t it. BUT, if you are looking for a healthy feel good refried bean, come on down I’ve got what your looking for. To start, bust out that home canned bean goodness you just stuck in your pantry and get ready for your belly to smile.

Home canned pinto beans
Clove or two of garlic
1 tbsp butter
Salt to taste



Pop that bad boy open toss it in a pot. Add garlic, butter and salt. Heat on medium high. You want to keep the flame medium high and constantly stir the beans. By cooking them on the higher end it will thicken them up the way refried beans should be. Once heated you want to mash them up a bit. At this point be careful with the garlic because if you mash it too much it will stat to look like a bean and then who ever finds it, uh um bites in to it, is the winner! At least that’s the game in our house. Continue cooking until desired thickness. Keep tasting it and salt to taste.

That’s it people, bam, refried beans healthy version. Enjoy with not so healthy cheese on top!



Happy refried beaning!
