The Best Spice To Bring Out The Flavor (And Color) In Refried Beans
Versatile and tasty with plenty of protein and fiber, refried beans are a fantastic staple, whether you make them from scratch, open a can, or rehydrate a dried version.
Pinto beans, the usual choice for refried beans, don't have a ton of flavor on their own. You can and should customize your refried beans, and we recommend adding chili powder.
Chili powder, not to be confused with pure chile powder, is a popular spice blend that can lend heat, a rich flavor, and an appealing color to your refried beans.
McCormick's Chili Powder includes ground chiles, cumin, oregano, garlic, and salt, which can come together to instantly transform your beans and prevent them from tasting flat.
The spice blend also helps to reinforce the garlic and chiles that are included in refried beans, and are also used in burritos, tacos, and other dishes that use the beans.
