Does anyone know of kosher refried beans? It is one of the few foods the family misses since we started keeping kosher. If it makes any difference we live in Maryland.
I was also hunting for kosher refried beans and I think I have found them at kosherdirect.com They are star-k (apparently the only ones available) If you don't live in the Seattle area (which I don't) you have to pay for shipping but a small price to pay to finally be able to get the beans!
What's the difference between Mexican refried beans and middle-eastern fool/foul/full (none of these spellings avoids a negative connotation in English)? I've had refried beans once, at Polanco, the kosher Mexican restaurant which used to exist on Amsterdam Ave in NYC, and to me it tasted just like fool, which you can find at any number of middle-eastern places.
I have seen vegetarian/"fat free" refried beans. I'm not sure what exactly their status is, though. Any thoughts from the experts?
