I always have a few cans of refried beans stashed away. They are a great protein source, side dish and if you buy the lowfat version, healthy. I love the nonfat lime chile refried beans but my new favorite is black bean refried beans. I love black beans and I will choose them over pintos or kidneys any day. I also have a favorite recipe for those cans of refried beans. I am still looking for more good ways to use refried beans in recipes. They are a pantry staple. And please don't tell me about the famous refried bean pie. I have heard it is delicious. I am just not brave enough to try it yet and I really am a big fan of fruit pies. So I don't really want to try refried bean pie. On the other hand, I love these roll-ups. I have used them for years as an appetizer for potlucks. I always get requests for the recipe.
Last week I tried them with my new fave black bean refried beans and I ate the whole thing for lunch. It was a tasty low fat meal that was a nice change from my regular lunch diet of salads. You can adapt this recipe from one to six wraps.
I am going to give you the directions for one. It is an easy no-cook recipe that can easily be doubled or tripled.
