Learn how to make refried beans in the crockpot, and take another item off of your grocery list. Here’s how they’re made:
Crockpot Refried Beans
Cook Time: 4-8 hours
3 cups dried pinto beans
(1) onion, chopped
1 tsp salt
What You Do:
Sift through your pinto beans, and pick out any broken beans or rocks that you find.
Soak the beans overnight.
In the morning, drain the beans. Then, stick them in a crockpot with the onion and salt. Add just enough water to cover everything.
Cover, and cook on high for four hours or low for eight hours.
Blend the beans up with an immersion blender (or a regular blender), and you’re done. Use your refried beans in bean burritos or enjoy them as a side dish.
If you after blending your beans, you find that you added too much water earlier, just cook them a bit longer with the lid off, until they reach your desired thickness.
Yield: (4) 15 oz. cans
These refried beans freeze beautifully. Stick a couple jars in the freezer for later.
