Autocorrect makes me giggle....

Do you have a can of diced green chilies? Those make canned refried beans yummy.

I cut up any veggies I have on hand (onion, garlic, peppers, corn) and sautee with cumin and cayenne then add the beans. I add rice often too. Makes everything stretch farther.

I stir cheddar cheese and salsa into my beans while I'm heating them up. Throw in some garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder. Sometimes we just eat it as a bean dip with organic corn tortilla chips for a filling snack.
