    We use dehydrated refried beans in most of our Mexican dishes. Really easy to prepare and surprisingly good.

    My nephew and wife made the best refried beans I've ever had last year at a family get together. She used her father's (He's Mexican) recipe and it called for cooking bacon first and then frying the beans in the bacon fat. They were to die for! Gonna try it myself this year. Not diet food for sure though but once in awhile they can't be beat.

    I have to agree that opening a can and heating it up is easy but I like to control my sodium level - high blood pressure.

    I tried dehydrated before and honestly, I wasn't pleased.

    I have used a potato masher before but I like the spatula or spoon for the methodic stirring and mashing.

    That is definitely a quick and easy route :)
    Once you've had good beans made from good ingredients you will notice the canned beans have a distinct taste. Not sure if it's from the lining in the can or from sitting for a while but the odd taste is definitely there in canned beans. I'll reach for a can when I'm in a hurry, but when made fresh they are a different food all together. Not diet friendly by any means, I usually use lard or bacon grease as mentioned above.

    Would you be so kind to PM me the recipe? I can't buy any Mexican food in Korea, so I have to make everything. :(

    Hey BigBaron,

    Here is a link to a video; it's not mine, nor do I wear a chef hat. On utube, there are many versions of it. I also cook my beans in a pressure cooker. From the slow cooker is when I do the refried beans.
