Description

This homemade refried black beans recipe takes 10 minutes to make and is also vegan and oil-free! In addition, it is easy, healthy, gluten-free and plant-based!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 small yellow onion (diced very small)
  • 1 can black beans (not rinsed, keep some of the liquid in the can)
  • 1 small chipotle pepper in adobo sauce + 1 tsp adobo sauce (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 tsp or more salt 

Instructions

  1. Heat a large pan or a skillet over medium heat. Add a couple of tablespoons of water. When the water is hot, add the diced onions and cook until translucent for 5 minutes. Keep adding a splash of water if onions are getting too dry.
  2. When the onions are caramelized, add the black beans (including the liquid in the cans), garlic, diced chipotle pepper, a little bit of adobo sauce, and salt. Continue cooking for another 5-8 minutes.
  3. If the beans are getting dry, keep adding a splash of water to keep them moist but not watery.
  4. Keep stirring the black beans and mash them using the back of the spoon or a potato masher.
  5. When you reach the desired consistency, cover the pan, and let it sit for 1 minute. 

Notes

Keep the leftovers for 3-4 days in the fridge. 

To reheat, add a little water and warm it up on the stovetop. 

Chop the onions very small for creamier result
