    MizEmerilLagasse's Note:

    These are the best low fat "refried" beans I have ever had. Finally not that pasty, gritty stuff you get from a can. These are the real things, and their still light! Thanks for trying them. ENJOY!

      We enjoyed these beans. The oil used in the recipe is not listed in the ingredients, though. I doubled this since my bag of dried beans was 2 lbs. I soaked them overnight and then cooked them in the morning for lunch. While we enjoyed them, we thought they were missing something. Some cumin added would be nice. Maybe some cilantro. The texture is lovely, though. We made these into burritos with low carb tortialls, fat free sour cream, and 2% cheese. (Plus some salsa for the adults.) Thanks for a great lunch.

      I made these beans last night and they were really good. I used pinto beans instead of black and found they needed a little more salt, but they sure are better than the canned version. They take a fair amount of work and time so I wish I had attempted this on a weekend vs. a weeknight, but I was anxious to try the recipe!
