When Mr Shoestring first came home with his no salt diet we had almost nothing in the house he could eat ! Refried beans to out on a tortilla and eat with homemade salsa was one of the first things I made which he could have and was tasty enough to go on the menu as a regular Saturday night treat ! Here's the recipe ! You can use your own beans or a tin of canned ones in no salt water. He does not mind what sort of beans they are so I have used all sorts in this recipe, from kidney beans to green lentils but I think kidney beans are his favourite.
1 tsp chili powder
1 400g can of beans
Pepper and garlic to taste
Oil for frying
Chop the onion and the peppers (I often use ready chopped frozen ones if they are cheaper than fresh).
Put in frying pan with oil and spices. Fry until caramelised. Add the tin of beans including water and pepper and garlic to taste. Fry for 10-20 minutes on a low heat, mashing the beans with a fork occasionally. Use when tortillas and salsa are ready !
