Desperate Man's Refried Bean Sandwich

Total Time

Prep 5 mins

It's tasty! I suppose I didn't have anything else around so I started thinking:) Preparation time is about 5 minutes if you toast the bread. This recipe is for when you want to make one sandwich. You can make as many as you wish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices white bread (I haven't tried any other types of bread, toasted is fine)
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans (I like the Taco Bell brand)
  • 5 dill pickle slices or 5 dill pickle spears, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Heat refried beans in small pan till warm (optional).
  2. I like it right out of the can too.
  3. Take sufficient amount of refried beans from can or pan to place on one slice of bread (depends on how hungry you are).
  4. Add mayonnaise, pickles, salt and pepper according to your preference over beans.
  5. Add the other slice of bread and eat away!
  6. Don't knock it until you try it.

I happened to see this in ReeLani's reviews and decided that I HAD to try it. It surprised me but honestly, it was really great! When I went to make it, though, I realized that I didn't have any refried beans. So I heated some pintos and mashed them with some cumin and onion powder. The combination with the dill pickle was fabulous. Really good fast sandwhich!

A great combination~and I'm neither desperate nor a man! I couldn't pass this up since it sounded so different and yet so good. I used Pepperidge Farms white toasting loaf, fat free refried beans, and a large Grundelsheim dill. Total comfort food, and I'll be eating lots of these sandwiches in the days to come.
