I absolutely love refried beans and they make a great side dish since they are packed with fiber to keep you full. The problem? Many times restaurant versions are packed with fat, at home versions can take hours to cook, and canned versions just don't measure up. This quick, short cut recipe can help though. Instead of using premade canned refried beans, we are going to doctor up some regular canned beans and make them taste almost as good as the real thing.
