    Not a bad recipe. I wouldn't use as much liquid as in the recipe and it does need seasoning.  -  17 Mar 2009


    Mine's turned out a little bit bland, could have done with some more flavour I think, but made quite a nice chunky (and low-fat!) dip.  -  22 Sep 2012


    I found that this recipe is geared toward tomato-lovers. For those who want a less tomatoey refried beans recipe, my suggestion would be to cut back on the amount of tomato paste used. Otherwise, it was quick and easy.  -  01 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
