I have not tried it but I have this soup in my library..

Refried Bean Soup

1 can black beans
1 can refried beans
1 can chicken broth

Bring chicken broth to a boil. Reduce heat and stir in refried beans until completely disolved. Add black beans and tomatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Maybe a Taco Pizza? Like where the refried beans take place of the pizza sauce?

Fry or bake corn or flour tortillas, top with warmed refrained beans, and toppings of your choice. Shredded chicken, ground beef, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, olives, salsa, sour cream, cheese, guacamole or avocado... Whatever you have or like :)

I have heard of someone making bean "burgers". Refried beans mixed with bread crumbs, chipotles, cilantro, and a squirt of lime juice and then fry on the stove. I was talking to a friend so I don't know how much of each but it is something to play with! Sounds good!
