I made a Mexican Layer dip for dinner earlier in the week. I didn’t have any refried beans in the house but I did have about 200+ lbs of dried beans. In about 10 minutes, I had really cheap fat-free refried beans. NOTE:The following can be done in a blender if it’s strong enough; test out about 5 beans in the bottom of your blender and see if it can handle it. Do not put more than 1/4 cup in at a time!
I started with 1 cup of whole dried pinto beans.
I put them through my wheat grinder and got about 1 1/2 cups of bean flour.
Then, I mixed the flour with 2 cups of cool water and then added it to 2 cups of boiling water. I stirred it with a whisk until it boiled, reduced the heat and cooked 4 more minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
For flavor, I added a package of taco seasoning (1/4 cup bulk bought at Costco) and then made the dip according to the recipe. These inexpensive beans are great for burritos or any other place you would use refried beans.
