Homemade Refried Black Beans ready in 10 minutes! The perfect addition to your family taco nights! Vegan, gluten-free & oil free!

So here I am, a year into bogging and it’s my first time jumping on the “taco tuesday” train. Don’t get me wrong, we eat tacos all. the. time. but I haven’t turned the components of our weekly taco fiestas, like these Homemade Refried Black Beans into actual recipes.

I think it’s because tacos are a fast and easy meal for me!  I can have an entire taco feast on the table in 3o minutes or less, so the thought of adding steps to that process {like actually writing out one of my recipes in a way that YOU can replicate} was less than appealing to my pregnant self. LOL! However, I had to make these Homemade Refried Black Beans into an official recipe and share it with you…because it’s my second favorite taco ingredient {after guacamole}! These beans are vegan, gluten-free and oil free! They’re the perfect super healthy addition to your taco Tuesday feast!

It’s no secret that I am a veggie lover living amongst carnivores. When I make tacos I always cook ground beef for my tribe, and these Homemade Refried Black Beans for yours truly. Hence why the whole 10 minutes thing works so well, I can easily cook these at the same time I’m browning the meat or chopping up lettuce! They can also be made ahead and reheated if that’s your jam.

Homemade Refried Black Beans: Method/Substitutions

Making these is SO easy! Simply heat the seasonings and water (or broth), add beans, smoosh {yes that’s a technical cooking term around here lol} cook and serve! The longer you let them sit uncovered, the more they will thicken. So once you reach your desired consistency be sure to cover them with a lid!

Water/broth: I usually use vegetable or chicken broth for extra flavor, but water works great too!

Seasonings: I use powdered seasonings but if you’d prefer to sub minced garlic for garlic powder, or sautéed onions for the onion powder you totally can. I am feeding kids so I use the powdered seasonings for a milder and less textured taste!

Fresh cilantro: I think it adds a ton to the flavor of these Homemade Refried Black Beans, but if you have little ones who don’t like green in their food, feel free to omit!

My sister leaves today after visiting for the weekend. It’s so great having her around. I love how much my kids adore her. I always feel sad when she goes back to Chi town, but I know I’ll see her again this summer when she comes to meet this little no name baby girl! 🙂 My sister is a vegetarian, so I always enjoy eating all the veggies {and chocolate} with her! 🙂
