Good. I can't have garlic, so subbed shallots instead. Beans that haven't soaked will be tough. Soak overnight and throw out that water. Replace with fresh water and continue with the recipe. Or bring beans to a boil. Let sit for an hour or two, then toss that water. Use fresh water and proceed with recipe. Or just use canned beans. Changing the water will take the toot out of the beans. Also, be sure not to add the salt until the beans are almost cooked through. If you add it early, the beans will be tough. If using canned beans, you won't need to add salt as there is plenty in the beans already.
I never made refried beans before wow did this come out great. The taste compared with my favorite beans at the local Mexican Resturant. Used some of the refried beans to make beef and bean enchilidas great my husband asked for more!!! I followed the recipe to the letter. It deserves
Wonderful refried beans! And healthy too! I did not add the tomato otherwise I followed the recipe as it's written. Instead of mashing the beans I pureed them in the blender to make them nice and smooth just like they are at our favorite Mexican restaurant.
Absolutely loved this recipe! I needed refried beans to make a 7-layer dip for a party and thought I'd try my hand at making my own beans for the dip. I omitted the cumin added chopped green bell pepper (half a pepper) and handful of chopped green onions (only because I had them on hand) and it smelled wonderful while it was cooking! I had to drain some of the liquid before mashing them (or the consistency wouldn't be thick enough). I tried a bowl w/ some shredded cheese on top and it was yummy! I'm sure it'll add special flavor to the Mexican 7-layer dip and taste better than canned beans. It is a very simple recipe; just a bit time consuming as it has to simmer a while but if you're home anyway it's no big deal. Loved this!
These beans were great! I didn't have much time so I used canned beans and left out the salt since canned beans are salty. I also added a little red pepper flakes for some heat. Very quick and very tasty!
I just got done making the beans and they are great. the recipe is so easy to follow. I have never made homemade beans in my life tell to day and you would never know it. What i did different was before the beans where done cooking i added the salt then. That let the beans absorb the salt.
After all of the raving reviews I was really surprised on this one. I ran them through a food processor and they were really bitter and unpleasant tasting. I added a lot of salt chicken broth and cheese and it made them okay. I will never make these again. Not worth the 4 hours of effort.
