Beans may not have the best reputation, but let’s face it, they’re delicious. They’re also a great source of fiber, folate, potassium, and, of course, lean, meatless protein. However, like too many processed products, store-bought refried beans tend to be unnecessarily high in sodium, which contributes to hypertension, heart disease, and other health issues.

This healthy refried beans recipe, inspired by the Food Network’s Ellie Krieger, relies on onion, garlic, and spices for flavor, rather than copious amounts of salt. Use these beans to fill enchiladas, bind veggie burgers, or just enjoy with chips as a hearty dip.
