IntroductionTastes as great as refried beans, but made fresh and easy in a mini processor - I have a Magic Bullet that I use for these :) Tastes as great as refried beans, but made fresh and easy in a mini processor - I have a Magic Bullet that I use for these :)
1 14 oz. can of beans, rinsed (I like pinto and great northern for this)
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. olive oil
dash of salt and pepper
water to thin as needed, or use some of the canned bean "juice"
Blend until well mixed, adding water for desired consistency and smoothness. Serve warm or cold. Makes 2.5 servings; 0.5 cups each.
I have served these warm over spinach, topped with red peppers; used them on Stepf's Mexican cornbread pizza crust; put them in burritos; and on top of nachos. Heck, you could just dip tortilla chips in it! :)
Number of Servings: 2.5
