I made two version of the refried beans: One with black beans, and the other with pinto beans. I enjoyed the pinto beans better,but both were delicious. I added a few extra ingredients: beef bullion cubs, cumin, and I reduced the amount of liquid smoke to 1/4 teaspoon. A special note: USE 1/2 CUP OF WATER. A CUP OF WATER IS TOO TOO MUCH, AND IT MAKES THE BEANS WATERY. This is defintely a keeper.

This recipe was way too salty!!! It's best without any salt.

5 stars with these changes: used 2 (15oz) cans pintos (drained & rinsed), added chili powder and cumin, used only 1/2 tsp of garlic salt and just a DASH of liquid smoke, mashed the whole thing in the pan. Quicker and VERY flavorful! Since I drained and rinsed the beans, I did need the water. Great with a few tweaks!

I've always wanted to make my own refried beans and being that I needed them for a recipe and didn't have the canned stuff in the house, this was the perfect opportunity. I too used pinto beans, omitted the salt, added more garlic, two cans of green chiles and only about a quarter tsp. of the smoke and a lot less water. For the reviewer who commented on the fact that this was not totally fat free; beans alone have a very small fat content. Most canned refried beans are made with lard, hence the reason that these would be considered fat free. Good eats Lisa and thanks!

I made these with pinto beans (Joan of Arc, which when I read the label it said fat = 0, so I'll believe that mine were fat free) but only because I didn't think that the kids would eat the black beans (I happen to LOVE black beans). These turned out really good! I cut the salt and the liquid smoke in 1/2. Not one bit left, thanks Lisa, these are the best (to date) that I have ever made!

Bravo. Excellent recipe. I changed a bit because I had only kidney beans in the house. I added beef broth instead of water and used a little less liquid smoke and salt than called for. I topped with just a touch of shredded cheese and EVERYBODY loved them. Thanks for the recipe.

This was a great starting recipe. I added a couple of pinches of cumin, a pinch of cayenne, more garlic and a little chili powder and made a quesadilla with salsa and cheese. Yum!

I thought this recipe was okay but I found the liquid smoke too overpowering. One thing that bothers me though... the name of this recipe. The beans have fat in them. :(
