I made two version of the refried beans: One with black beans, and the other with pinto beans. I enjoyed the pinto beans better,but both were delicious. I added a few extra ingredients: beef bullion cubs, cumin, and I reduced the amount of liquid smoke to 1/4 teaspoon. A special note: USE 1/2 CUP OF WATER. A CUP OF WATER IS TOO TOO MUCH, AND IT MAKES THE BEANS WATERY. This is defintely a keeper.

5 stars with these changes: used 2 (15oz) cans pintos (drained & rinsed), added chili powder and cumin, used only 1/2 tsp of garlic salt and just a DASH of liquid smoke, mashed the whole thing in the pan. Quicker and VERY flavorful! Since I drained and rinsed the beans, I did need the water. Great with a few tweaks!

I've always wanted to make my own refried beans and being that I needed them for a recipe and didn't have the canned stuff in the house, this was the perfect opportunity. I too used pinto beans, omitted the salt, added more garlic, two cans of green chiles and only about a quarter tsp. of the smoke and a lot less water. For the reviewer who commented on the fact that this was not totally fat free; beans alone have a very small fat content. Most canned refried beans are made with lard, hence the reason that these would be considered fat free. Good eats Lisa and thanks!
