Are Refried Beans Vegetarian?
Typically, authentic refried beans will contain lard or animal fat to add a rich depth of flavor. However, vegetarian versions are also available like La Preferida’s Vegetarian Refried Beans, which contain four simple ingredients: precooked pinto beans, water, salt, and soybean oil. The soybean oil is used in place of lard so you can enjoy the products you love without compromising on flavor!
