Instant Refried Beans – Friday Food

fridayfood2.jpgNo, I’m not repeating the recipe from a couple weeks ago. I’ve been asked about another recipe I have for Refried Beans – the Fast and Easy Way!

Instant Refried Beans

Mill clean, organic dried, pinto beans in your NutriMill (or other grain mill that is designed to do dried beans,) at the same setting you use for bread flour, or slightly courser. (No, you don’t have to use organic, but it’s better for you if you do. Yes, you DO have to use dried. DO NOT wet them in any way before grinding. Just pick out any foreign objects.)

Boil – 2.5 c. purified water in a small saucepan.

Whisk in:

3/4 c. pinto bean flour

1/2 t. unrefined salt (Real®, himalayan, or celtic)

1/4 t. cumin powder*

rounded 1/2 t. chili powder

small clove minced garlic, organic – or scant 1/8 t. garlic powder

Stir over medium heat about 1 minute, until mixture thickens. (Lumps are fine.)

Reduce heat to low and cover pan. Cook approx. 4 minutes more. (Mixture will thicken more as it cools.)


approx. 1/2 c. organic, natural Salsa

Serve with fresh, corn Tortilla Chips or use as a burrito filling, in whole wheat tortillas.

Bon Appetite – whoops, forgot again – Ole!

*Note: Use non-irradiated spices. You can add a bit more salt, if you really must, and less or no garlic, if you want.
