Nothing To It-Slow Cooker Refried BeansFrom keni 8 years ago
- 1lb pinto beans(rinsed and soaked over night, please...you don't HAVE to do this, but I highly recommend it) shopping list
- 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and halved shopping list
- 2 small or 1 large onion, quartered shopping list
- 3-4 cloves garlic, minced shopping list
- 1t cumin shopping list
- 3-5t salt(this recipe NEEDS salt...remember, you are making a pound of beans, so don't be too concerned about this amount. TASTE them, if they seem bland, which, they shouldn't, they most likely need a bit more salt.) shopping list
- 9-10 cups liquid(all stock, half and half, or any other combo...all water CAN be used, but more seasonings, will need to be added) shopping list
How to make it
- Place beans into sprayed crock pot.
- Add garlic, onion and pepper, just set them right on top.
- Add about 1/2 the salt.
- Add liquid until covering beans with about 1-2 inches extra.
- Cook on low about 8 hours until beans are soft.
- Carefully pour liquid off of beans. Don't take out of pot and drain, totally, just pour off what can be poured.(you want a bit of liquid to remain for mashing)
- **You can remove onions and peppers, here, if you'd like, or you can leave them and mash them with the beans. I leave them. ;)
- With potato masher, carefully mash beans until desired consistency.
- Return to heating element and add rest of seasonings.
- Stir well. Taste. Adjust seasonings as needed.
- Heat on low or warm about 30 minutes just to let seasonings blend.
- **Serve as mentioned above or as a stand alone dip for tortilla chips, topped with sour cream and shredded cheese**
