This refried bean hummus recipe is loaded with flavor without the fat. I love making homemade hummus, it happens on almost a weekly basis around here. I tried this one with a canned refried beans, which is totally not authentic in any stretch of the imagination… but it was good. Like a super creamy spicy dip that I couldn’t stop eating. I topped this hummus with some green onion and sesame seeds.  This is one healthy navy bean hummus recipe you can enjoy again & again!

How Do I Make Refried Beans Hummus?

  1. Add all ingredients into a large bowl, and mix until the dip is creamy and  well-combined. If it’s too thick, you can add olive oil a teaspoon at a time until it reaches desired consistency.
  2. Place hummus into a bowl or plate, top with more chili flakes, fresh chopped cilantro, and green onions to garnish. Dip away!

Just a note: this is 100% not any type of authentic recipe at all – it’s not quite Mexican, not quite Mediterranean, it’s just a bit of a mashup. I ended up making this recipes based on ingredients I had on hand. And it turned out so good, I wanted to share in case anyone had some refried beans lying around and wanted to try something new.

Make Refried Beans at Home

While I love the convenience of canned beans, I also love cooking dry beans from scratch in my Instant Pot to make my delicious Instant Pot Refried Beans.  I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, which is larger than standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Instant Pot works wonders for cooking dried beans fast, no soaking required! While canned beans are super convenient, they are often loaded with sodium.  If you buy canned beans, I always recommend using a no salt added variety so you can control the amount of salt in your dish. Next time you reach for the canned beans, think about https://amzn.to/3t9a5Oa! Homemade beans are incredibly cost efficient, and you can add seasonings and spices to the beans while they cook for extra flavor.
