Fat-free refried beans are the surprise ingredient in these soft, high-rising loaves with just a hint of heat. “Beans increase the protein content of the bread and are so good! We serve this instead of garlic bread with Mexican dishes.” Sandra Lee Herr - Stevens, Pennsylvania

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the beans, sugar, butter, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.

  4. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
