I've never been much of a refried beans eater. Not necessarily because I don't like them, but mostly because they just seemed like such a waste of stomach space when I'm feasting on Mexican food! I'd much rather get my fill on chips and queso, tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. 

Beans have always just been the plate filler for the white space not occupied by the "real food." 

That was until I tried these refried beans.

These beans totally steal the show. Forget a main dish! All you'll need is a bag of chips and a big bowl of homemade refried beans, and you'll forget about all those other plate fillers. Who needs em?!

Better than how smooth and creamy and how flavorfully seasoned these beans are? How easy they are to make! Slow cook them with chicken broth for about 5 hours. And then all you have to do, literally, is blend them up. That's it! 

Folks, this could not get any easier. What are you waiting for?! Go eat some beans!
