I need to try this! I love refried beans, but I hate the BPA in the can lining! It's nice to open a can in a hurry, but if these freeze as well as you say, that would totally be the way to go. Dried beans are way cheaper, too. 🙂

Oh my goodness!! I love making refried beans! I am so going to use this recipe next time as they look absolutely DIVINE!!! I can seriously eat homemade refried beans with just a spoon. I do not even need a chip! Thanks for the recipe! 😉

Hi there. This is my first visit to your blog, (love the refried beans btw!) and I read your post from a few days back about rude comments. I can't believe someone would even say that. I looked around, and didnt see a single "gross" photo. Your food looks terrific!! Those cinnamon rolls are drool-worthy and I could never tell they are gluten free (Im bookmarking those!). Dont let the negative ones get ya down. -from another nonphotographer in a dark kitchen 🙂

I'm not normally a fan of refried beans but I think I can get behind these. You made them look super delish.

@Carolyn-What Life Dishes Out Carolyn, you should definitely give these a try! It's nice to know you can make things quite simply, that we usually get out of a tin. Just takes a little time, but if you use your slow cooker, it's not that it needs to be tended to, just mixed & left! 🙂
@Kim-Cook it Allergy Free Ha, Kim, me too! Chips are sort of optional. Glad that I'm not the only one. 🙂

@betty r Hehe, Betty, I bet they are tasty without onions as well. 🙂 And thanks for the comment on the photo…refried beans are NOT very photo friendly.
@Eliana Thanks, Eliana! I think you'd enjoy them…covered with cheese & salsa & dig in! 🙂

Do you remove the onion before mashing, or just sort of mash it in? I went with door #2 when I made these today, but I think I probably should have removed them, as they didn’t mash up very well.

Actually, I leave the onion in. After cooking for 3+ hours, they are pretty soft, and I haven’t had a problem mashing them (and we’re not huge onion fans here), but I’ve never seen chunks after mashing. HTH.

Thanks! There were definitely big chunks of onion in mine, but maybe I just didn’t mash vigorously enough. It was delicious, nonetheless.

My youngest loves refried beans, a stockpile in the freezer would be great. Bean and cheese burritos make the best best busy night dinners.

How do you freeze them?

I just spoon about 2 cups into a zipper seal bag, seal, squish so it sits flat, and stack them that way in the freezer. Works well!
