I have always used this seasoning brand to make tacos but the past two times I have used the seasoning, the flavor has drastically changed. My husband even noticed and asked what I did differently.

Metallic Smell and Taste

1 out of 5 stars
Donna O - 2 months ago
originally posted on OldElPaso.com
I haven't bought Old El Paso Refried Beans (traditional) in awhile. Opened a can last night 1-2-2024 and the beans smelled awful. A very metalliac smell. I thought it was just me but husband could smell it too. I warmed them up and no change in the smell. I did taste the beans but it tasted bad as well, that metal taste. I have another can I bought at the same time, but nervous about eating it. Probably will go in the trash.

Soupy runny beans

1 out of 5 stars
E in TX - 4 months ago
originally posted on OldElPaso.com
I have been buying these for years and opened a can tonight and it was completely runny and watery. I assume they are diluting to increase the profit. First the regular taco shells became super tiny and thin, and then the seasoning started tasting flavorless like filler, and now the beans are ruined. I've been buying Old El Paso products for at least 20 years--What is going on?

Two cans of very runny beans

1 out of 5 stars
Mexicanfoodlover - 4 months ago
originally posted on OldElPaso.com
I bought two cans of traditional refried beans dated 2025. Both of the cans were extremely watery and runny. We were unable to eat them and I can’t take them back for a refund. Is this a problem with the manufacturer or the handling of the product? Please advise. Not a happy customer.

Less flavor for more money

Balto - 4 months ago
originally posted on OldElPaso.com
I'm used to buying the store brand for everything but this time I decided to treat myself to an American staple. The flavor was so non-existent that I can't help but wonder if the "mild" version is just food coloring to make beef look more appealing as taco meat.

Old El Paso has "new coke"'ed themselves with this recipe change. Was my favorite taco seasoning, but since they changed their recipe, I've changed my seasoning.

I thought the can was spoiled

OMG I just bought the big can and my son flew in from NJ and he wanted his favorite nachos baked in the oven with these beans topped with cheese and Jalapeno peppers!! I knew something was wrong because before I made them I thought something is wrong, but we decided to try them anyways. Brought them out of the oven and WE all ate one and couldn't eat anymore and threw it all away. I took a pic of the beans in the can and got the barcode because I thought they were spoiled, but now I see all these reviews and I wished I would have taken the whole can back to the store for a full refund!! Very unhappy to see you've changed your recipe because I've bought these for so long!! BTW too much Cumin and so watery

Like many others I have used OP Refried Beans for years. I must have been luck to keep getting the "old" recipe cans of late. Recently my last two cans were very watery. Needless to say I am dissatisfied and will move to a new brand. Adios Old El Paso!

Beware: Contains Bioengineered Ingredients

1 out of 5 stars
Icky - 5 months ago
originally posted on OldElPaso.com
Read the labels. This seasoning contains bioengineered ingredients, in other words fake food. I have been a lifetime consumer of Old El Paso products, It has been a staple in my household for more than half a century since I was just a kid. Just today I realized that it has bio engineered ingredients and so it went in the trash. I have also posted on social media about this poison in your product. Please, our country is battling sickness and death due to fake everything. I’m asking you to consider going back to real products and real food. Until then my family and I will not be using your products, even if that means forever. As a lifetime former consumer of yours, I thought it was fair that you should know. Let’s get real. Susan
1 reply from Old El Paso team - 5 months ago
Thanks for reaching out with your concerns! Today, if an American food or beverage product lists corn, soy, canola, cottonseed or beet sugar as an ingredient and the product is not organic, it likely contains genetically modified/bioengineered ingredients. Rest assured, safety is our number one priority. We find broad global consensus among food and safety regulatory bodies that approved genetically modified/bioengineered ingredients are safe. We hope this information is helpful to you.

I’ve been purchasing these beans for years and would continue to do so until tonight. After opening the can I found them to be only as thick as soup. I will not be purchasing them again.

They reduced the contents from 6 servings to 5 and slapped gluten free on the packaging, they also increased the suggested water amount from 2/3 cup to 3/4. You're better off to just buy bulk seasoning now

Lots of Cumin - Reminds me of Chili

1 out of 5 stars
Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
TargetteWeWe - 6 months ago
These refried beans are poor. There is way toooo much cumin, so it ends up tasting like chili for a football party. Added flavoring is not necessary. Very disappointed and will not purchase again. I prefer the LaP brand. Will be donating the other can.

These are the worst refried beans ever. They were so watery, looked like a soup. I opened 2 cans and they were both the same. Couldn't eat them, had to throw them out. Ruined our dinner
