Mmmm these are the Best Refried Black Beans, so good and so easy. I love this recipe.
I've been making these beans for years. This recipe makes a fair amount, so you can portion and freeze for another day.
These beans are equally delicious kept whole and eating as is ( I do this quite often)
or adding to soups and chilies, etc,..or in my "Vegan Supreme Crunch Wrap" YUM!
I'm sure these would do well in an 'instapot'. I'm old school and don't own one.
We'll see how long it takes before I succumb to the "Instapot craze", haha.
I like to check the beans in the last hour of cooking. If you find them getting to dry, add some veg broth or water, half cup or so. Don't add to much, you can always add more at the end when you're mashing them.

Hi, I overlook the „dried“. Can I use cooked beans as well and how does that affect the procedure? All the best, Sebastian
Hi Sebastian, this recipe is for dried beans, it would not work for cooked beans. Have a great day Sebastian!
Perfect staple for the week! So good in wraps, with taco chips, on greens, anything!
