Easy Refried Beans Recipe -- Ready in a Flash!

Refried beans (frijoles refritos) are a staple of Mexican cuisine, and a favorite element in many great Mexican dishes. Traditionally, the beans are fried and mashed in a generous amount of pork fat to create their trademark rich, soft, velvety texture.

Our updated, refried beans recipe is even easier with canned GOYA® Pinto Beans cooked in just enough oil or GOYA® Lard for the delicious, creamy texture you love. Sprinkle with cheese, and enjoy as a spread for tortillas, as a side dish with grilled meat and poultry, or as a meatless filling for burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and tostados.
