Traditional Style Fat Free Refried Beans at Trader Joe’s
Trader Joe’s beans come in a lot of different forms, but the these beans are one of my favorite options. How does everyone like to use these in dishes or in recipes? Beans are one of the most filling and healthiest foods you can eat, which is part of the reason why I love Mexican cooking so much. These are also filled with all sorts of good vitamins like calcium, iron and potassium. I’m curious to know how close these taste to legitimately traditional refried bean recipes people have tried? As always, these Trader Joe’s refried beans are fat free and have a good amount of protein without sugar. And if you can’t make it out to TJs, give these items a try…..

Trader Joe’s black beans review
One thought on “Trader Joe’s Refried Beans, Traditional Style”
I’ve always purchased these beans because they let me add the type of fat I wish to use. But now…something has changed. They are so salty I can barely eat them. I used to use bacon fat to flavor them which is very salty and they tasted so good.
Now they are so salty, I can’t add any fat except maybe oil.
I don’t have an older can to compare the salt levels.
When I check other brands this amount of salt on the label doesn’t seem out of line.
Someone at Trader Joe’s needs to taste these beans. Maybe I got a bad can for some reason. I am not on a low salt diet or anything…these were just too salty to enjoy.
