These were great! Out of preference, I used a can of black beans instead of kidney beans and I used the recipe in 7-Layer Dip. Thanks - no more canned refried beans for me!

We loved these refried beans. I had a can of pinto beans, so I used that instead of the kidney beans. I also used minced fresh jalapeno for the chile pepper. We like a little texture in our refried beans, so I used a potato masher instead of the stick blender. They were easy and fast to make, and tasted delicious. It doesn't get much better than that!

Very tasty. Who wants canned refried beans if they can have this instead. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil and sauted the garlic at a lower temperature or it would have burnt. I used a 19 oz can pink beans because that is what I had on hand and have read they are used in refried beans as well. I just added sea salt and water since I had no vegetable stock on hand and it worked fine, for the chili pepper I used cayenne, to taste, plus the rest of the ingredients. I do recommend this.
