Homemade Refried Beans

A couple weeks back I share with you all my homemade list of things I’m excited to try this year! Over the weekend we hosted a little taco bar for our friends and I decided to try making homemade refried beans.

It was such an easy recipe. I cooked up the beans a few days prior this way. On Sunday afternoon I whipped up a batch. I think next time I might smooth them out just a bit using the food processor and add a little bit more milk but other then that I thought they had great flavor. I’ll definitely make them again, now that I know how.

Then mash, add extra milk if needed and serve warm topped with cheese!

I followed the recipe from Money Saving Mom and you can view the complete recipe here.

Have you made homemade refried beans before?

  1. Those look so good. Must be lunch time. Yes, I have made my own refried beans before. They’re so much better than the can stuff.

    • I completely agree. I can’t believe how easy it was too! Thanks for stopping by Tiffany!
