ok, i now have a new favorite dish for veggies. its 2 cups broccoli with 1/2 refried beans and 2 tbsp. hot salsa all mixed in a bowl. ever since ive been doing this ive questioned the nutrition/health of refried beans. i buy an organic canned version where the only ingredients list: water, pinto beans, green chiles, and sea salt. didnt know it was possible to make refried beans without oil/butter
so i guess im questioning how theyre made. are they just already cooked and mashed or what? the only disadvantage (that i see) to whole pinto beans is that it is more calorie dense packing 19g carbs (7g fiber), 0g fat, and 6g protein. is there any difference that im missing?
