My simple Homemade Gluten Free Refried Beans recipe.
1 small onion diced
2-3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cups cooked beans
(I use kidney beans from the freezer, but you can use pinto beans.)
2-4 Tablespoons salsa (more for garnish if desired)
garlic salt to taste
Saute onions in olive oil until translucent.
Add beans mashing slightly. Heat through.
Add garlic salt and stir to combine. Remove pan from heat and use immersible blender to blend (or cool slightly and put in your food processor or blender.)
Serve with tortilla chips as a dip or use to make bean burritos. We also serve this with quesadillas. Yum!

Can these be frozen?
Sorry Heather, I don’t know. I have frozen the cooked beans, but never actually frozen refried beans. If you try it, let me know how it works. Thanks!
I have frozen refried beans before, and they worked out fine.
Another easy way to make re-fried beans is in the crock pot. We call them crock pot beans. I soak a bag or two of pinto beans overnight, and then put them in the crock pot in the morning, with just enough water to almost cover them. Then cook on high all day long until they are soft, add salt, then mash them with a potato masher. If too thin, cook longer with the lid ajar. If you want a quick dip, stir in shredded cheddar and/or salsa. 🙂
Great idea Jamie–thanks!
Yeah thanks! I love cooking in the crockpot! Especially as a mother of 3 little ones (ages 3, 2, and 6 months) I need food to be easy!
