  • 15 oz. can refried beans (vegetarian-style)
  • 15 oz. can black beans
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 cup vegan cheese shreds (more or less)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • Tortilla chips for dipping
  • Toppings (optional): tomatoes, green onion, avocado, olives, etc.


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C).
  • Dice onion and mince garlic. In a pan over medium-high heat, sauté onion for about 8 minutes or until softened. (I use 3 Tbsp. water/broth for no-oil sauté method.)
  • Add garlic, cumin, and salt to taste. Stir and sauté 1 minute.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low. Add refried beans and black beans (rinsed and drained). Stir with spatula to combine. Heat for 3 minutes until refried beans soften.
  • Transfer mixture to a lightly sprayed 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Top with cheese.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Top with diced tomatoes, green onions, avocado, or other toppings of choice. Serve with tortilla chips for dipping.
