Eating cheaply isn’t as easy as “cooking it yourself”. Besides the cost of the groceries, cooking takes time, and — if you’re working multiple jobs or long hours to support yourself or your family — you might not have an excess of hours.


I have nothing against food that comes in cans, especially when it comes to beans, but refried beans are something that I absolutely prefer making myself. Beyond just tasting "better", you can manipulate them to suit your specific palate as you adjust the seasonings, aromatics and - most importantly - the fat.


Canned beans may not be the most glamorous food, but if you're strapped for time (or cash) they're a great base for a nutritious meal. If the thought of heating up a can for supper makes your palate want to die of boredom, do not fret: meal monotony can be easily prevented by stirring in a few flavour-packed additions.
