Can I freeze refried beans?

I made a batch of homemade refried beans and it made a ton. Do you think they'd be ok if I freezed some? Thank you!

  1. Yep- they freeze well.

    1. i usually make one big batch, divide it up and freeze the bags. works great.

      1. Yes they freeze very well. Make sure to leave room for expansion in the container:) If you cook a large batch it is best to freeze whole beans with liquid. I add liquid to the top of smooshed beans before freezing too.
