I am a lover of all beans – black, pinto, northern. They’re all good in my book. But nothing beats a bowl of really good refried beans! They are creamy, flavor-packed and super delicious. AND, this recipe lets you make your own refried beans at home, without too much hassle. A must-make for your next taco night!

How to make Vegan Refried Beans

Making these refried beans is beyond easy. Cook some onions and jalapeño in avocado oil for 5 minutes. Add 2 cans of pinto beans (including the liquid in the can) & spices and cook down for another 20 minutes.

Once everything is tender, add some lime juice and use an immersion blender (or standing blender) to blend up about 3/4 of the bean mixture. You will be left with a creamy bean mixture that is next level delicious. Add some more salt, if needed, and get ready to eat.
