I love these dehydrated refried beans. You simply add water and they are ready. SO much better than canned refried beans. No "canned" taste.

I highly recommend that you try this product.

These are, without a doubt, the best refrieds I've ever prepared and/or eaten ... and I'm a long time lover of refried beans.

They are a snap to prepare. Although the directions say to cover and simmer for five minutes, I've found it best to turn the heat to low and stir uncovered for about three minutes or so, then remove the pan from the burner and let them sit covered for a couple more minutes.

A quick comparison to a can of top brand 'fat free' refried beans shows that the Santa Fe Fat Free Vegetarian beans have less than half the sodium! And, because of the handy packaging, you can reduce the salt further by shaking the pouch first. This knocks some of the salt to the bottom. Then scoop the contents of the bag into the boiling water, leaving the salty residue at the bottom of the pouch - don't need it.

Plus, there are so many additional things you can do with refried beans that are prepared this way. (e.g. add extra water for delicious bean soup or use as a great base for chili). The creative possibilities with this simple "comfort food" are endless.

Oh, and they are a great value, also!

Great flavor, fast easy to prepare...makes great chalupas, bean dip, and thickens the juice of friojoles for cornbread & beans.

Wish I had room to store a case.

I don't mind canned beans, but these are better, and I like the varieties. I got all three of the Santa Fe varieties available and my review is the same for each -- easy to prepare and yummy! Forget the cans and maintain these in your pantry. I use them for dips, for nachos, for a sidedish, instead of meat in lasagna, and whatever.

I've used these for hiking and kayaking camp cooking. Lighter in weight than a can and easier to pack, the resealable foil pouch makes it easy to use a portion and save the rest for later, or a handy place to put leftovers. I've also snacked on the uncooked chips right out of the bag, although they are a bit salty. I've cooked a whole bag in a Jetboil PCS, but I recommend going with smaller portions, unless you're REALLY hungry, or have several people to feed. One bag makes a heap of refried beans.

Santa Fe Bean Company:

-- Mild cereal flavor, similar to corn flakes (which I prefer). Moderate sodium taste; in fact, this brand tastes as though it has more sodium, contrary to the nutrition labels.

-- Some clumping of dry bean flakes. Rehydrate slightly less rapidly, although no problem. Two halves of an unflaked bean found, after the contents of ~5 packages consumed; no damage to my teeth.

-- Lower price per ounce.

-- Convenient bag, durable and resealable. No individual box to discard.

Taste Adventure:

-- Mild bean flavor. No significant sodium taste, although the nutrition labels indicate this brand has more sodium.

-- No clumping of dry bean flakes. Rehydrate quite rapidly. No unflaked beans found, after the contents of >60 packages consumed.

-- Higher price per ounce.

-- Packaging less convenient. A little bit of bean powder sometimes found in individual cardboard box. Plastic bag not designed to be resealed.

Homemade refrieds are clearly the most desirable. Canned refrieds are unacceptable. These are a good alternative to homemade. Easy and quite good. I add a little butter and olive oil to the vegetarian. It makes them richer and smoother. I buy the vegetarian because they have less sodium than the standard beans.

I tried the regular variety Santa Fe Bean Co., Instant Southwestern Style Refried Beans, 7.25-Ounce Pack (Pack of 8) first. Although I liked it, I was disappointed at how much salt had been added. Usually with fat-free varieties, there is more sodium than the regular equivalent, but in this case, the fat-free is lower in sodium. This turned out to be perfect for my tastes and nutrional needs. I use equal parts of this dried bean mix and water, then I add a little bit of Clint's Salsa (which is relatively low in sodium) and a little bit of shredded cheese. The result is both flavorful and still reasonably healthful.
