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**

    Made this tonight. It was the perfect dinner to come home to after 3 long days. I didnt mash it up as you can see from the pic. I did blend it a bit to thicken. Great recipe and supper easy. More posted in IMI Kenis Nothing To It Slow Cooker Refried Beans

    Easy to make and awesome taste. I added a pinch of cayenne and finished them in cast iron to thicken them up a bit...I mashed them with too much liquid left in the mix. Delicious recipe!

    Looks like a Great refried bean recipe, i make it somewhat similar to this, just not in the slowcooker, but i should try it! I DEFINATELY agree with you on the soaking overnight method, it isnt necessary but well worth it! A huge difference in my opinion, im looking foward to trying your recipes!

    Great recipe! I've never even considered making my OWN refried beans, but this sounds great for my next get together. I will probably add some kind of chiles, though.

    I make my refried beans with the same ingredients only with additional chili powder and I cook them on the top stove.
