Lesson 55. How to cook canned beans

Canned beans and canned refried beans are an excellent way to make your meals. Refried beans does not mean they've been fried, it just means they've been fully cooked.


This is how you cook canned beans

1. Open can.
2. Drain out water.
3. Rinse beans several times in tap water.
4. Cook alone in a pan with some water until beans are as tender as you'd like.
5. In a separate fry pan, cook your spices and veggies.
6. Add these veggies and spices to the pot with canned beans.

While I prefer to cook dried beans, canned beans are great to have around for a quick hot meal. I do use canned beans to make my veggie cutlets.
