Black Refried Beans

Once you have these refried beans on hand, you can use them as a base for tacos, burritos, dips and more.


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed, divided
  • 1 can chopped green chilies (4 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Place a medium size skillet over medium heat with two turns of the pan of oil, about 2 tablespoons. Add 1 can of beans, the chilies and cumin to the pan and mash the beans up with the back of a wooden spoon.

Stir in the remaining can of beans. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and continue cooking to heat through, 2-3 more minutes. Serve warm.
