A few weeks ago my mom invited us over for Sunday dinner. Some old family friends were in town and she had invited them over and was planning on making her famous tacos.
She initially asked me to bring lettuce. Well, the day before the dinner I asked if we could bring something else because we did not have lettuce and I didn't want to have to go buy any. She asked if we had any refried beans and I said yes, and we could bring those.
Well, Sunday morning I looked and what I thought was a giant can of refried beans turned out to be enchilada sauce. Oops...
As you may or may not know, we do not shop on Sunday. It is one of several ways that we try to keep the Sabbath day holy, by refraining from making purchases and running similar types of errands that could be done on any of the other six days of the week.
Well, we did have several cans of beans, just not refried and I thought, "I bet I could make refriend beans because... the internet." So I snooped around and learned a few things and made these fast, simple, tasty, and VEGAN homemade refried black beans! That's right, these homemade refried black beans are vegan! You don't use lard to make these refried black beans, and with no animal fat, it meant Madalynn could have some too. Hooray!
These homemade refried black beans are so tasty and versatile, You can use them as a base for a bean dip, put them in some burritos, or serve as a side like we did with my mom's tasty tacos.
So, if you're looking to really impress your friends at your next potluck, whip up these tasty, vegan, homemade refried black beans and you will be everyone's hero!
