Home made refried beans

Dee Tourville


Yes, it's so easy just to buy canned refried bean but this taste so much better. AND you can add any seasoning you like. I like to add chipotle seasoning.

How to Make Home made refried beans


  1. in a medium-large (10-inch) bacon drippings over medium.
  2. add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant but not brown, about 1 minute.
  3. 3. Add the beans. As the beans come to a simmer, coarsely mash them with a bean masher, old-fashion potato masher or the back of a large cooking spoon. How smoothly you mash them is entirely a matter of personal preference
  4. Cook, stirring nearly constantly, until the consistency of very soft mashed potatoes—expect about 10 minutes total cooking time.
  5. taste and season with salt if you think necessary.
