If you are looking to use less meat in your cooking, try to replace ground beef in your recipes with beans.  It improves your health and if you use dry beans, will save you a TON of money.

This recipe is one that I found and have modified to use with beans.  I usually will make a pound of refried beans from a pound of dry pinto beans that I soak and cook.  We all love this recipe because it isn’t just the generic rice and bean meal and it is great with Spanish rice as a side.
