I use refried beans in burritos, on nachos, even on pizza, but the ones from the store are loaded with sodium. This version is low fat and low sodium, and they are delicious.

How To Make unfried refried beans no fat low sodium

  • 2
    If using fresh cooked beans, drain juice. OR if using canned beans, drain and rinse well. Most of the sodium is in the juice. Use approx. 1/2 c of pico de gallo to 2 c. of beans. Add more or use less depending on your taste.

    Mix drained beans and pico together. Place in food processor, add a little water and puree. The longer these sit up in the fridge the more flavorful they become. Add more spices if desired, but this really doesn't need any, it's SUPER flavor just as is.

    Here is a low fat/sodium recipe for nacho using these beans.
  • This was made using home made pinto beans, pico de gallo, pickled jalapeno juice and apple cider vinegar.
    I also use this recipe for the beans: I made 6 c. using these beans cooked without the ham hock. Once cooked I drained them and added 1/4 c. of pickled jalapeno juice (which does have sodium), 2 Tbl. of apple cider vinegar, and 2 c. of pico de gallo, then pureed them in batches and mixed altogether when finished.
