Refried Beans

To go along with yesterday's Spanish rice, I thought I would recommend my absolute favorite re-fried beans. They come from here and they only cost $3.75 for 2.4 lbs. They come in a can that looks like this:
And when you open the can it looks a little bit like corn flakes. But once you add a little hot water, they are the best re-fried beans I have ever had outside of a really good Mexican restaurant. I like to add a little of this:
some cheese, a little diced onion, all in a big flour tortilla and call it Taco Bell at home. Those of you who knew me in college may recall my weakness for Taco Bell, so being able to make it at home is definitely a good thing!

I need to show this post to Dennis. I love the 'food storage' refried beans, too. I agree, they are the best! Den prefers the boring canned ones.

Yummy, I love refried beans. I haven't tried those though. Do you get them at the cannery? Sometimes as a convert I feel so clueless about these things... Anyway, I added your blog to my "favorite cooking blog list" on my blog. :-)

Heather, they are from the cannery. I just order a couple cans every time the YM/YW go and they last me until the next time. An old room mate of mine always swore by them. And I'm so glad I took her advice because they are yummy!
