So many of us buy refried beans in a can when we want to make a Mexican meal. But, did you know you can make nearly twice the amount of refried bean from scratch with the cost of one can of store-bought beans? Save your money and give this recipe a try. It's not only healthier for you, you can control your ingredients without added preservatives.
