Chef's Notes

Health Twist: This lighter version of refried bean roll-ups shaves off 70 calories and 7 grams of fat from each serving of the regular recipe; Purchasing: Traditional refried beans are prepared much like their name suggests. Cooked beans are mashed and fried, often in lard. Check your grocery aisle for equally tasty fat-free refried beans; Variation: If you like your tacos "loaded," then load these up, too! Bulk them up in colorful, delicious style with chopped or sliced jalapeños, sliced ripe or green olives, chopped tomato or chopped bell pepper; Using a slow cooker will create a delicious, authentic dish with very little hands-on time.

  2. Easy peasy. Added just a little more salsa and a teaspoon of cumin.
  3. Call it cooking or not it was a recipe I hadn't thought of.It was "clean out my cabinets week".I don't use refried beans but my daughter had left some.I entered refried beans in the search area and this came up.I had everything else on hand.Easy tasty and a cheap meal.
  4. I m not sure if opening a can of beans and a jar of salsa can be considered cooking but I do know that the few ingredients combined in this recipe taste great. I topped mine with grilled onions and peppers instead of lettuce. Very easy and delicious. Paired with some yellow rice and salad - Read more ...
