I found this recipe one evening when I was rummaging through the cupboards for something to eat and grabbed a can of Rosarita refried beans and noticed a delicious-sounding recipe on the back. I whipped this up within an hour and added even more stuff to it. My family & I were hooked with the first bite. Even some of my sisters who swore they would never try it, ended up trying it and they ABSOLUTELY love it too! I have added quite a FEW things to make this soup even BETTER! Perfect on a cold evening. Enjoy!!! Serves 16 people at 3 cups per serving. (weight watchers 9 points per serving)

6
Bring to a soft boil and add can of refried beans, one can at a time and mix well to dissolve beans into broth to form a creamy consistency.

Once refried beans are evenly mixed with the broth, add corn last for an additional 5 minutes or until corn is heated.
