Fast Refried Beans

Yield: 1 servings

2 Fat-free refried beans
1/2 cup Mild salsa
1/2 tsp Onion powder
1/4 tsp Garlic powder

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over low heat about 10 minutes to blend the flavors.

Servings: makes 4 cups

Recipe Hint: Precooked and even fat free refried beans can be found in every supermarket. There are black, white, red, kidney, and pinto beans. Use them for "almost instant burritos and tortillas" made by spreading whole or mashed beans on a corn or whole wheat tortilla and adding tomatoes, onions, sprouts, and your favorite salsa. Use cooked whole beans for the foundation of cold salads or add them to soups and stews.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
