These are a nice change from the usual straight from the can beans and they're quick and easy to make in the microwave. We love them along side tacos, enchiladas or any other Mexican dishes.

DH is the refried bean lover in the family, so I asked him to award the stars. He said it was definitely 5 stars. I'm thrilled the recipe was so quick and easy to make. A great choice for the Cameraless Chef Game.
