We recently gave 500 CafeMom members a free can of Old El Paso Refried Beans and asked them to serve them to their family.  They then shared with us what they loved about Old El Paso Refried Beans and how they prepared their Old El Paso Refried Beans.

Here's what some of our moms had to say:

I made a layered dip with the beans, sour cream, salsa and cheese. - Stacie03

My kids liked the taste! And they liked dipping their tacos into them:) - dejavu17

Even my very picky daughters ate them! - Ladybugmama86

Now tell us, what is your favorite recipe using refried beans?

I did tacos with them.  But I love enchiladas and I put refried beans in mine.

My kids LOVE bean dip for an afterschool snack.

I put beans in a square casserole pan, cover it with cheese, and bake it for about 20 mins. They eat it with tortillas chips. It's SUPER easy, cheap, and full of protein for my big eaters.

They are great for my kids on their own, in a quesadillas or my faves is in enchiladas! We use the vegetarian/fat free kind.

I could probably make it for some nachos. I've never cooked refried beans before.

My family doesn't really like refried beans. When I get them at a Mexican restaurant, I will use them as a dip for my tortilla chips, but I don't make refried beans at home.

I've never really used refried beans before. But taco dip sounds delish!

We make fajitas pretty often and put some refried beans on them. My husband uses them on quesadillas all the time.

I usually make my own refried beans from scratch , I am PR and my husband is Mexican so we both perfer homeade. But my favorite dish to make with beans is homeade chilli rellanos. Or we might just put then in  flour or blue corn tortillas and eat them , he likes that for breakfast.
