Refried Beans

Hello everyone, you seen my money-saving tips blog where I cooked pinto beans from stretch to save money.  Well here are some refried beans that I made using one of those packs of the refried beans I made and this came out delicious.  There is nothing like making homemade food the flavors are so much more fresher.

This was super easy to make and better than take out.




1 tsp. minced garlic

2 cups of pinto beans (or 15.5 oz. if using a can)

½ – 1 tsp. cumin

½ – 1 tsp. onion powder

¼ cup chicken stock

Salt to taste


If using homemade beans put them in a pot and add in the stock. If using a can of pinto bean drain and rinse the beans then put them in a pot.


Put heat on medium low and add in the stock stir and mix well.

Then add in the garlic, cumin, onion powder and salt to taste. Stir the beans to make sure all the seasonings are incorporated.


Using an emulsion hand blender or you can put in a blender puree until beans are smooth, or you can leave some bean whole.


Give the beans a taste to make sure it has enough seasonings and then remove from heat and serve.
