Refried Beans, Canned

Canned Refried Beans are usually smooth pinto beans. They may be with or without added fat.

Refried Beans are usually packed in a 15.5-ounce can, which yields about 3 1/2-cup servings.


    • Store unopened cans in a cool, dry place off the floor.

    • Avoid freezing or exposure to direct sunlight. Sudden changes in temperature shorten shelf life and speed deterioration.

    • Store opened refried beans in a tightly covered nonmetallic container and refrigerate. Use within 2 days.


    • Refried beans may be used either as a vegetable or a meat/meat alternate.

    • Served as an accompaniment to a main dish, refried beans may be topped with grated cheese.

    • As part of the main dish, refried beans may be featured in various Mexican entrees, such as bean burritos, bean tostadas, chiles rellenos, or nachos frijoles.


    • Refried beans should be heated slowly at a low to medium temperature. Stir occasionally to distribute heated beans.

    • Do not overheat – beans can burn and dry out quickly. Refried beans are best served hot.
