Canned refried beans

What brand(s) of canned "refried" beans do not have cumin? Thanks!

  1. DUCAL imported from Guatemala
    two available frijoles negros and ? I think red beans,maybe pinto can't remember
    A real plain jane,the seasoning is almost non-existant to taste.
    ingredients : beans,vegetable oil,salt,onion,garlic nothing else
    I know there are two or three other imports just as plain.

    1. Just had some Casa Fiesta Spicy Refried Beans in Huevos Rancheros this morning. They do not list cumin in the ingredients (nor do they have a generic "spice" category) so they probably would be acceptable to you. Taste was ok, too.

        Thanks. Sometimes I just want to grab a can (as opposed to making from scratch), but cumin is something I want total control of. Hate when it just sneaks in there!
