Quick Bean Soup

I mixed these beans with freeze dried imitation ham bits, dehydrated onions and some spices to make great, quick individual bean soup packets. I was amazed how good it is!

Family Loves Them!

These have to be a staple in our kitchen! If I ever use canned refried beans from the grocery store insted of these dehydrated ones, my family complains. I like these much better myself, and plan not to ever run out again!! Thanks EE for carrying such a great product!!

Fantastic eaten dry!

While these beans are excellent rehydrated, they're even better eaten dry. They're in flake form, and have a potato-chip-type crunch. Occasionally, I add a little seasoned salt, cayenne, or some herbs. I keep them around for storage and for every day... and I'm ordering another several cans even as I write this. Yummy!

Love This Product

This is an amazing product. We use a little salsa or mild taco sauce when we reconstitute and they are as good or if not better than most canned products. These beans can be made as thick or thin as you like. The kids love they can make what they want without leftovers or wastage. We buy these by the case and great for adding body to soups as well. Highly recommend this product!

Lots better than canned

These are very good. Real pinto bean taste with just a hint of salt. No cumin, garlic, jalapeno, etc. powders. Add spices later if you prefer in the quantity you like. You can even crunch a handful dry as a quick snack along with your favorite drink they're that good.

Excellent texture!

I ordered this because it was on sale and seemed like a handy item to have on hand. The flavor is very good but what truly impressed me was the texture. When you rehydrate this product what you get resembles freshly smashed beans. This will work for burritos etc but even if you just prepared the beans and dipped chips in them you'd be satisfied. These beans are great!

A real treat!

My husband and I really enjoyed the refried bean. Easy and fast to prepare, and tastes fantastic! Well above our expectations!

I ordered a can of these to try, as I was looking for a convenient alternate source of protein. My only disappointment was reaching the end of the can and realizing I didn't have any more! I cannot say a single negative thing about this product. Anyone who tries this will not be disappointed at all in the quality!

These were great! And so easy too. If you order these you will not be disappointed. Much better than any canned refried bean or other dehydrated beans that I have tried. I will order more.

fantastic product!

These beans are delicious, better than most brands of canned, and so convenient! Now if we want a cup of bean dip, it's ready in just a few minutes! No more half-cans left in the refrigerator to be forgotten either.

These are perfect

We were looking for lighter weight options for nutritious food to take when we hike the PCT from Mexico to Canada. We ordered the Refried Beans and combined it with the Freeze Dried Ground Beef, Freeze Dried Cheddar Cheese and Freeze Dried Onion to make filling to put on tortillas. It was delicious and we will look forward to eating this combination on the trail.

These are so good and so fast to fix. I could eat them every day! Emergency fast food, yummy!

O.M.G ! ! !

First, let me say that my purchase of this was based "Entirely" on reading the 5 star reviews, (before mine). After trying it for the first time & how easy it was to make, all I can now say is, Get some "NOW"!!! Trust me, you will "NOT" be disappointed...

Wish List

Far better than canned refried. I wish they offered these beans in 6 gallon superpails.

Posted on 3/5/10 by Tim Johnson

I love these beans

These beans are the best thing since sliced bread, hehe. Flavor is better than any canned bean I've ever used and I love the convenience!!!

great tasting need less salt.

These beans are really good as far as flavor but I wish they had less salt they are a little too salty for me.

Posted on 7/27/09 by Janet


These are the best tasting refried beans I believe I have ever had! I love the convenience of the quick prep. Excellent for tacos, burritos, etc; as well as dips and appetizers.

Better than canned

These beans are better than the ones you get in the Mexican food section at the supermarket. We use them all the time. If you like refried beans you need to have at least a couple of these #10 cans on hand!

Refried Beans

I love these. Not only are they great just fried, but I also add them to soups for more protein.

Posted on 3/2/09 by Nancy

Great Taste!!

These beans are great with some freeze dried sharp cheddar added and topped with tobasco or chilero sauce! I'm going to order more!

Posted on 3/1/09 by Mike

These are great!

I absolutely love these and so my family! They taste better than the refried beans you by the can in the store. Versatile and economical, I always keep a can of these on hand.

Posted on 1/3/09 by Diana


These beans are awesome - just add them right to your chili for super thick, tasty chili you can roll up in a flour tortilla or eat with chips as a dip.

Refried Beans are wonerful!

I grew up eating refried beans and when you are in a hurry the freeze dried version are wonderful. I find they need more water to hydrate than what the directions call for. For even creamier beans, add milk (fat free half & half works great) and cheese while heating in a fry pan (no oil needed).
