How to Make Refried Beans

Making refried beans from scratch can be a pain. Luckily, there are a variety of canned refried beans that aren't half bad. And ll you need to do is heat them up — what a time saver!

You can heat refried beans in the microwave or on the stovetop in a pan or a skillet. If you choose to go the microwave route, be sure to spoon them into a microwave-safe bowl. Cover the bowl with a damp paper towel and heat for two-to-three minutes — the can should tell you exactly how long Don't forget to stir often! You might need to add a little water to keep the beans from drying out.

Canned refried beans are virtually impossible to ruin, unless you burn them. But because they are a tad bland, you may want to add some flavor, like chopped coriander, sliced mild green chilies, or garlic powder. Cheese is also a great way to flavor-up a can of refried beans.
