    How long will cooked beans last in the refrigerator?

    I cooked up some anasazi beans last weekend and what didn't get put in the soup have been sitting in my fridge ever since. They smell okay but I'm just not sure about them. How long have you kept your cooked beans in the fridge? Thanks.

    I've gone a week before so I'd probably use them.

    Thanks Sneezles. I'll probably rinse them good, give it another sniff test and use them. Just needed some reassurance.

    I noticed when beans start to go bad there is a film that develops over them. Nothing worse than bad beans in the fridge. Just had some last week. They got shoved to the back of the fridge and I forgot about them. Boy Howdy!

    I find that they are usually good for about a week, and go bad quickly after that. So...they're probably fine to use now, but I wouldn't bet on leftovers of the dish you're making today.
    Okay...it's time to pull up your big-girl panties and get on with it. (Seen on a bathroom wall.)

    Hmmm - maybe I'll toss them then. I was hoping to have leftovers.
