    Tish's Note:

    It's nice to have some refried beans you can pull out of the freezer for a side with your Mexican meals without opening a can with all the extra fat. One side serving is 1/2 cup, which also makes about 4 tacos or burritos These are a great side dish, may also be used for burritos, and can be served as a main dish with plenty of shredded cheddar and salsa on top. Take the time and make these ahead. You won't be sorry!

      Great tasting bean recipe. Followed recipe to the letter and ended up with way too much liquid, maybe a error on my part or my beans, but after blending with my imersion blender I had refried bean soup! Added a can of kidney beans, mashed, and cooked on high uncovered in slow cooker for another 3 hours and they were perfect. Flavor was great and have 4 small containers in the freezer of good, fat free beans after dinner last night. Will make again, next time I will remove the liquid before blending and add as needed to avoid bean soup. Thanks for posting.

      I followed everything perfectly. I did add a few slices of celery as well as onion. My only complaint was it was way too runny. Next time I will drain a lot of the fluid before I start mashing. The coffee seemed weird but the flavor was great, just not the consistency I was going for.

      Super recipe! I cook lots of beans and I'm always looking for something new and a little different.I've never cooked beans with cilantro before and I'm not sure why. Its a marriage made in heaven. These smelled amazing while cooking. My DH had worked all night and I started these in the morning when he got home. He went to bed and woke up a few hours later asking me how I can expect him to sleep when the smell of delicious things cooking kept waking him up. It'll be so nice to have these ready in the freezer to use whenever needed. So much better than canned. Thanks for posting.
