Pros: great flavor, easy to prepare
Refried beans are dried beans cooked, mashed and then fried in lard. Most people who make them at home add spices to their liking but usually they add onion powder, garlic powder, salt and my personal favorite for spiciness, cayenne pepper powder. We have never been able to make a good batch of homemade refried beans and so I have always purchased Rosarita Refried Beans when I want them for a Mexican dish.
Each 16 ounce can of Rosarita Refried Beans contains the following ingredients; cooked beans, water, less than 2% of lard, salt, distilled white vinegar, chile peppers, onion powder, spices, garlic powder, natural flavoring and it also contains a trivial amount of fat. This product may also contain soy for those of you who have allergies.
One serving of Rosarita Refried Beans is equal to 1/2 cup. There are 3.5 servings per container and each one of those servings has 120 calories. 20 of those calories are from fat. Each servings has 310 milligrams of sodium, 18 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of dietary fiber, less than 1 gram of sugars, 7 grams of protein, 2 % Vitamin C and 15% iron.

You can buy Rosarita Refried Beans in a variety of flavors such as authentic homestyle, spicy, traditional, no fat traditional, no fat zesty salsa, vegetarian,low fat black bean and no fat green chili with lime. Rosarita Refried Beans can also be purchased in a variety of sizes and quantities. You can purchase an 8 pack of 16 ounce cans for $6.40 or the 7 pound can at a cost of $3.35. Our local grocery store sells a 16 ounce can of Rosarita Refried Beans for $1.49 each. They also sell 40.5 ounce cans for $2.99 and 30 ounce cans for $2.29 at our local grocery store.
Rosarita Refried Beans can be used in a lot of Mexican dishes or appetizers. We mix a 16 ounce can with a can of Rotel tomatoes and 2 cups of cheddar cheese. Nuke it in the microwave on high heat for about two minutes. Stir and then nuke for another minute or so. Then I like to sit down, watch a game and eat the dip with a bag of On The Border tortilla chips.
We also use Rosarita Refried Beans to make chimichangas, burrito pie, bean burritos, tostadas, seven layer dip and Mexican lasagna. All of these dishes are easy and affordable to make. We purchase the 7 lb cans and make several of these dishes and then freeze them to be reheated at a later date. The boys love coming home from school and throwing a bean burrito into the microwave for a minute or two and then eating it for their afternoon snack. Buying in bulk saves a lot of money and the Rosarita Refried Beans freeze very well.
Thanks for reading and rating. Here's a joke for your enjoyment.
A man and his wife have gone to bed. After laying in bed for a few minutes the man cuts a fart.
His wife rolls over and asks, "What in the world was that?"
The man says, "Touchdown, I'm ahead, 7 nothing."
A few minutes later the wife lets one loose. The man says to her, "What was that?"
She replies "Touchdown, tie score."
The man lays there for about 10 minutes trying to work one up. He tries so hard he craps in bed.
The wife asks, "Now what in the world was that?"
He replies, "Halftime, switch sides."
