Refried Bean Soup

Judy @ I’m Board, Let’s Go


(Ingredients modified to include Aldi brand name)

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red or green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 Tbls. Casa Mamita chipotle puree*
  • 1 tsp. Stonemill Essentials oregano
  • 1 tsp. Stonemill Essentials cumin
  • 2 C. Chef’s Cupboard chicken stock
  • 1 can Happy Harvest fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1/2 can Dakota’s Pride refried beans
  • 1 can Dakota’s Pride black or 1/2 can pinto beans (drained and rinsed)


  1. In soup pot, saute onions, bell pepper and garlic in a little bit of olive oil, until soft. Add chipotle puree and spices. Saute a bit more to combine. Add chicken stock and tomatoes (undrained), then add refried beans. Bring to boil while stirring to combine refried beans into the soup. Reduce heat, add black or pinto beans and continue to simmer for flavors to meld. You can eat right away if you’re in a hurry, or let it simmer 10-15 minutes (good time to make a salad or quesadilla!)
* For the chipotle puree, I blend a can of chipotles en adobo and then freeze it in tablespoon size portions to cook with. You could just chop up a chipotle pepper from the can with a little of the sauce, or just add chipotle pepper spice. Or even chile powder…this recipe is all about using what you have on hand.
