Easy Refried Beans with Pinto and Kidney Beans

Who says you have to keep on making your favorite dishes exactly the same way? Traditionally, refried beans are made from pinto beans. This version also incorporates red kidney beans for an interesting alternative for something just a little bit different. It’ll give your snacks and meals a different flavor, plus add a little bit of color.

This quick and easy recipe is perfect for busy weeknight meals or whenever you want a healthy, meatless side dish for your favorite Mexican or Tex-Mex entrees. Use it in some of my other upcoming recipes that are coming soon!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4

Tip: For a more flavorful and authentic variation, substitute bacon grease for the olive oil in this recipe.
