  • Best Refrieds Yet ...
    These are, without a doubt, the best refrieds I've ever prepared and/or eaten ... and I'm a long time lover of refried beans.

    They are a snap to prepare. Although the directions say to cover and simmer for five minutes, I've found it best to turn the heat to low and stir uncovered for about three minutes or so, then remove the pan from the burner and let them sit covered for a couple more minutes.

    A quick comparison to a can of top brand 'fat free' refried beans shows that the Santa Fe Fat Free Vegetarian beans have less than half the sodium! And, because of the handy packaging, you can reduce the salt further by shaking the pouch first. This knocks some of the salt to the bottom. Then scoop the contents of the bag into the boiling water, leaving the salty residue at the bottom of the pouch - don't need it.

    Plus, there are so many additional things you can do with refried beans that are prepared this way. (e.g. add extra water for delicious bean soup or use as a great base for chili). The creative possibilities with this simple "comfort food" are endless.

    Oh, and they are a great value, also!...more info
  • Yummy healthy alternative!
    These are pretty darn good for instant and vegetarian. They are a nice alternative to canned refried beans that contain lard. The nice thing about them is that you can add more or less water depending upon how thick you like your beans.

    Note: They are pretty bland, so you'll need to add some kick to make them spicy.

  • Great for camping!
    I've used these for hiking and kayaking camp cooking. Lighter in weight than a can and easier to pack, the resealable foil pouch makes it easy to use a portion and save the rest for later, or a handy place to put leftovers. I've also snacked on the uncooked chips right out of the bag, although they are a bit salty. I've cooked a whole bag in a Jetboil PCS, but I recommend going with smaller portions, unless you're REALLY hungry, or have several people to feed. One bag makes a heap of refried beans....more info
  • No canned beans compare!
    Quite simply, these are the closest you can get to homemade.
    They taste great and are easy to store. Add our own spices if you want more flavoring and in less than 10 minutes you have refried beans for a side dish or to use for nachos or recipes calling for this ingredient.
    I buy these regularly....more info
  • The best beans you'll ever have in under 10 minutes
    These beans are AWESOME!!!!
    If you can boil water you can have beans that are better than almost any Mexican restaurant and that are actually healthy for you. My 6 yr. old and 18 month old can eat a whole bag themselves with a couple of tortillas. ...more info
  • Best Refried Beans
    These are the very best beans on the market ..After eating these you will never open another canned refried bean again.......more info
  • Good refried beans, but too salty...
    I agree with the other reviewers that these refried beans taste good, but I consider the salt content too high - both in terms of taste and health. Whenever I prepare these beans, I add salt-free corn to reduce the sodium content per serving, which helps. If the Santa Fe Bean Company would reduce the sodium content of this product by one-third, I would enthusiastically buy again. As it is, I probably won't, as I am watching my sodium intake....more info
  • Great refried beans!
    I have been buying these beans for over a year and sharing them with friends. We think they are fabulous. First, they are so quick and easy to make. You can have great refried beans instantly! I sometimes add a pinch of dried minced onion while the beans are cooking and a touch of garlic powder at the end. Others add salsa, jalepenos, and cheese after the beans have been cooked. It is totally up to you. You could even add taco-seasoned ground beef. You can eat them straight from a bowl or with chips as a dip or on nachos. Also, you can put them on a tostada shell or crumbled tortilla chips and then top them with your favorite toppings (tomatoes, onions, black olives, cheese, shredded lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, etc.) Instant Mexican haystacks! I am trying to eat beans every day since they are so good for you, and this product makes that really easy to do. I understand that Santa Fe Bean Co. has added a Borracho Beans product to their line. I hope Amazon starts carrying that soon!...more info

  • Better than canned
    I don't mind canned beans, but these are better, and I like the varieties. I got all three of the Santa Fe varieties available and my review is the same for each -- easy to prepare and yummy! Forget the cans and maintain these in your pantry. I use them for dips, for nachos, for a sidedish, instead of meat in lasagna, and whatever....more info

  • Gret beans!
    These are great refried beans. Easy and quick and delicious. No canned taste, either. Don't let the fact they are dehydrated put you off.

    Until just recently I was able to purchase them at my Raley's grocery store in northern CA but my store has discontinued them (BOO!). Try these...you'll like them. ...more info
  • Good eating
    Great flavor, fast easy to prepare...makes great chalupas, bean dip, and thickens the juice of friojoles for cornbread & beans.
    Wish I had room to store a case....more info
  • Best Refried Beans Ever!
    My wife and I both LOVE these refried beans. They are very fast and easy to make, and they taste superb. I eat them plain a lot of the time. I would recommend these over canned refried beans any day!...more info
  • Great product, easy preparation
    We bought this product in the past to ship to our daughter, who lives in China. Refried beans is one food item from home that she craves from time to time. She can buy tortillas at an import store, but not the refried beans. Cans are too expensive to ship, so a dehydrated product is the perfect solution.

    Last time we bought a box to ship to her, we decided to taste the product ourselves. We found that we agree with all the five-star ratings. This stuff is good! I was afraid that a dehydrated product would be finely powdered, and yield just pasty glop. Much to my surprise, the product has good texture, comparable to canned refried beans. This tastes much more like home-made beans than the canned version, however.

    We will be buying more for us! Great product....more info
  • Love these beans!
