Sprouted Refried Beans

Sprouting pinto beans enhances their flavour and texture, resulting in perfectly creamy, rich, buttery refried beans that are bursting with flavour. Use this recipe for burritos, quesadillas, tacos, nachos, as a dip and much more!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 1 Cup

What You'll Need:

  • 1 cup cooked Second Spring Organic Sprouted Pinto Beans (1/2 cup dry)
  • 2-3 tbsp water (I save and use the water I cook the beans in to add extra flavour)
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of chipotle powder (optional, but definitely encouraged for a deep smokey flavour and hint of spice!)

How To Make It:

In a food processor/blender (creamier - my preferred texture):

  • Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender, starting with 1 tablespoon of water. Pulse and continue to add water a little bit at a time until desired texture is reached.
  • If you add too much water, not to worry, add to a frying pan and cook on medium heat, stirring constantly until it thickens. You can also do this if you need to heat them up!

By hand (chunkier texture):

  • Combine ingredients in a large bowl, starting with 1 tablespoon of water. Mash with a potato masher or fork and add additional water a little bit at a time until desired texture is reached.

Notes

Store leftovers (if you can stop yourself) in an airtight container in the fridge.
