"After trying some of the refried beans recipes from this site, I will never again eat them from a can. However, the recipes I enjoyed were time consuming. This recipe is a marriage between scrumptious home made and easy (like canned)."

"Pretty tasty but not my fave. If in a rush I will probably do this again other wards I will take the long road and make them authentically."
"Delicious, wow! And so easy!!! Who knew? I added a little garlic powder mmmmmmmmm. Thanks for the keepr Cooks4_6!!"
"Yummy and so easy! I halved the recipe for 2 of us and added 1/2 tsp garlic powder. I will never buy the canned stuff again! Thanks for sharing"
"This was great! I used half the butter, and it was plenty rich. These were so much better than the canned ones - I'll be making them this way from now on. What a great idea to use salsa! Thank you!"
"Just what I was looking for! I was making a casserole that called for refried beans so I found your recipe. I used half in the recipe and we ate the other half last night for a snack. Delicious. I am amazed at how easy refried beans can be. Thank you for sharing this yummy recipe with us."
"Holy Cow! These are awesome refried beans. I have been looking for good refried beans that are similar to the ones in mexican restraunts. This did it for me! So simple and so yummy!!!"
"Very good and simple beans. I like the fresh taste of them compared to canned. I used half butter and bacon grease. The salsa I used was hot. This was a great way to use up the last of a salsa jar. We made burritos and added this to each one. Made and Reviewed for Zaar Stars Tag - Thanks! :)"
"Delicious! These beans are so simple to make and taste so much better than the canned variety. I left out the salt because the salt from the butter and cheese was plenty for my family's tastes. I used a "medium" heat salsa and 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese. These beans were the perfect side to our fish taco dinner and my family gave them 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper! *Made for Zaar Stars*"
"Great! Simple and good. Thanks Cooks. Madefor Zaar Stars."
"Yes! This was just what I was looking for. Thank you so much for posting...they turned out very yummy. I omitted the salt (I used salted butter so I figured that was enough). Easy and fast to make. Thanks again."
"This is a great hurry up recipe. If you don't have time to make a pot of beans, this is the recipe to make. Tasty! Thanks for sharing! ~Made for Bevy Tag 5/08"
"These were very easy to make and very tasty. I used them along with seasoned ground turkey to make tostadas. I just mixed the beans into the cooked and seasoned turkey once the beans were done. We really enjoyed our tostadas with them. Thanks for an easy recipe."
"This was very easy, love pinto beans :0 Did cut back a little on the butter and add just a little bacon grease."
"These were delicious!! I had to guess a little on the amounts b/c I was using leftover pinto beans I had made in the crockpot. They still were great. My husband was super impressed and said they were awesome! Thanks for making my first attempt at homemade refried beans a success!"
"This halved easily, although in doing so, I had to add slightly more beans to get a thicker consistency. I also added cumin (about 2-3 tsp.) as our family really likes this spice. Thanks for a quick and tasty side dish."
"I must aagree with the others, this is great! My DH loved it and so do I! Easy and quick. Thanks!"
"Yum! These beans are really tasty! Everyone in our dinner party loved them. I think I may cut back on the cheese next time and add a bit less butter- They were REALLY gooey and rich, a wonderful addition to our chicken burritos. Thanks so much for posting this definite keeper!"
"Yummy!!!! My BFF made this for Mexican night. I don't normally like refried beans, but this is fantastic."
"Wonderful. Easy. Tasty. Loved by all. Thanks!"
