One of my favorite guilty pleasures at Mexican restaurants is the refried beans. I love them. I’ve even been known to order double beans, no rice. However, the secret to real Mexican refried beans is the lard, and ain’t nobody got time for lard in their food, at least not on a regular basis.
Thank goodness for Brookshire’s Fat Free Refried Beans. While they taste like the “real thing,” they contain zero fat.
The only ingredients in the can are pinto beans, water and salt. You prepare them just like you would any refried beans, heating them in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot, stirring frequently.
They’re great as a side dish, on nachos, on tostadas, in burritos, in a casserole, in migas for breakfast or any other way you’d use the full-fat variety.
