Refried Black Beans

Posted on

A while back, I shared how I cook black beans in the slow cooker {Slow Cooker Black Beans}.  Whenever I do this I always make a large batch & freeze them in pint sized jars so that it’s easy to grab a jar.  If I had to remember to soak & cook beans a day ahead of time, every time we eat beans or need them for a meal, we’d rarely have beans.  So, this method works well for me.

For a long time, I cooked dried beans for things like chili or casseroles, but I’d still grab store-bought refried beans from mexican dishes.  Then one day, the revelation that I could make my own refried beans hit me!  Crazy idea, huh?

So, I really feel like this can hardly be called a recipe, but in case there are others out there that, like me, didn’t realize how crazy simple this is, here you go!

Oh, and honestly, you can do the exact same thing using different types of beans.  I just always use black beans for who knows what reason :).

Refried Black Beans

2 c. cooked black beans {or any kind of cooked dried bean}

1/2 c. salsa

Place in food processor or blender & puree`.  {I have a Blendtec, I LOVE my Blendtec. If you have one too, run it on the batters mode & voila`!}

That’s it!  Told you it was simple.
