Homemade Refried Beans

I had some dry pinto beans on hand and decided to make homemade REFRIED BEANS. After soaking the beans overnight and cooking them to add moisture the process was simple. I started with 1.5 cups dry beans to make 3 cups cooked beans. You can always use beans from a can to eliminate a step.

Making Refried Beans is Simple

All you have to do is add cooked mixture to a food processor or VitMix and pulse. You can also use an immersion blender if you have one (saves clean-up time). The machine does all the work.


(increase/decrease spices based on your tolerance ... this is medium spicy)

3 cups cooked pinto beans

olive oil (just enough so ingredients do not stick in the pan)

1/2 onion diced

4 cloves of garlic (medium or 2 large)

2 tsp cumin

2 tsp chili powder

2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 cup low salt vegetable broth

salt and pepper to taste


  • Sautee onions and garlic in olive oil until translucent

  • Add beans, broth, and spices and cook until combined

  • Smooth using an immersion blender, food processor, or VitaMix

  • Serve with your favorite chips.
