Refried Beans (Better Than Store-Bought)

Refried Beans (Better Than Store-Bought)

For the creamiest, most flavorful refried beans, start with dried beans. Cooking the beans from scratch gives us the chance to add flavorful aromatics like onion, garlic, and cilantro to the cooking liquid. The dried beans can be cooked on the stovetop, which takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours or in a pressure cooker (like an Instant Pot), which takes about 1 hour total.

If you are short on time, you can also make refried beans using canned beans, which takes less than 20 minutes. We’ve shared all of these cooking variations in the recipe below.

Makes about 3 cups refried beans
