Our pantry is always stocked with a couple of cans of refried beans. Slap some between a couple of Food for Life brown rice tortillas, spray both sides with a little olive oil, brown in frying pan and you've got a zippity quick lunch for kids. The thing is, we RARELY use an entire can. I would end up putting the leftover beans in a Pyrex dish and then a science project weeks later in the back of the fridge (yuck). So the other day I experimented with freezing scoops of the refried beans and it worked great! I used a 2 tablespoon scooper, scooped mounds onto a plate and froze. Once frozen I tossed them into a storage container and, voila, no more waste. Now I take a few out in the morning and by noon they are thawed and ready to smoosh between two tortillas. Or for those who have not banished the microwave, you can thaw them that way. Pretty slick!
