We eat a lot of beans here at my house. My daughter is obsessed and could eat them daily. She’s been singing the “Beans, beans, good for your heart” song since she first was able to speak. In fact, that might have been one of the first songs that I taught her. Hey, us parents have to amuse ourselves somehow!

Our favorite way to enjoy canary beans is fresh out of the pot with hot sauce and cheese or refried with a cheesy tortilla.

This Refried Beans Recipe is super simple. Just toss the ingredients into a pot and cook until tender. Add water along the way as needed. I don’t even soak my beans anymore. I’m not a meal planning type of gal. I’m a fly by the seat of my pants, cook what I’m craving at the moment type of gal. So if I’m craving refried beans . . . I want refried beans Today. Not tomorrow. Not next Tuesday. TODAY!

Once the beans are tender and still have a a little bit of liquid remaining, smash, mash or blend. I prefer slightly chunky refried beans so I use my potato masher to do the job.

Then just pan fry the beans alone, with oil or with lard. I don’t usually use oil or lard for my refried beans. But then, I always add copious amounts of cheese and the canary beans are already creamy enough for me.
