Tasty Refried Beans Recipe With Chorizo Is Made With Leftover Black Bean Soup

The other night I made six-ingredient black bean soup for dinner. Being just the two of us, we had leftovers. When six-ingredient beef empanadas were on the menu the next day, I decided to see if I could make refried beans out of the leftover soup. Well, it was a success!

The same technique could be used with canned black bean soup. Pour the soup into a pot, mash and cook until liquid has evaporated. Depending on brand of soup, you may want to add some ground cumin, chili powder or garlic powder.

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 0 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes (approximately)
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: varies on amount of leftover soup


Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the leftover soup into a soup pot or skillet over medium-low heat. As they heat up, mash them with a potato masher.
  2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until almost all the liquid has been absorbed and they have the consistency of refried beans.
  3. Top with shredded cheese, if desired.

Mexican food is just the best. 🌮
Genius, Donna John ! I love learning new ways to use leftovers, that aren't simply just a quick reheat in the microwave. 🥰

Me, too! I hate throwing away food, and now that we're empty nesters, it's hard cooking just for two.
I hear you there! The Government of Canada is apparently thinking of doing away with "Best before" dates on food sold here. They think it will help reduce food waste. I have really mixed feelings about this one 🤫.
