Wow. I am a college student, so I don't have a lot of cooking resources available to me, but this recipe was easy and great! All the girls on my hall in the dorm were going crazy over it! I'm gonna have to start making it in bulk!! Thanks so much for spicing up the food intake of a girl that's sick of cafeteria food!

Well I have done it again. Went to get my refried beans one was gone. So I ran to Zaar. Oh Yes a recipe just what I needed. They turned out much better than any canned could do. I used bacon fat. Out of olive oil. Darn to the store I will go. Thank You for help once again. Bell Rings For WINNER!!!!!

Mmmm! Easy and delicious. I did not have any adobo seasoning in my pantry, so I substituted 1 tsp. taco seasoning mix instead. I also used 2 cans of pinto beans (drained, rinsed, and gently boiled for 30 min.). I may use 3 cans next time. Or dried beans. Thanks for the recipe.

Excellent! I loved these beans. I used beans made from scratch. Its funny because I LOVE garlic, but I didn't like it in these and think I'll leave it out next time. Thanks for posting. I'll be making these often.

Thank you Elizabeth for a great recipe. I needed refried beans for the first layer of my Layered Nachos With Avocado Layered Nachos With Avocado (well my daughter's recipe actually) and I had forgotten to get the refried beans. I substituted red kidney beans & cajun seasoning for the suggested ingredients because I didn't have the correct ones in the pantry. It worked so well I think I'll make my own in future, using the correct ingredients in your recipe. Thank you for getting me out of trouble - I should have made a list but thought I'd remember everything :-). I've put a link to your recipe in the description of my nachos recipe so I'll have it handy when I need it - or for anyone else that may make it.
