Mashed Beans

Submitted by: CRAZYDOGLADYBO

Introduction

This is my version of re-fried beans, healthier option. I do not do spicy, but you can add pepper flakes, chili powder etc to this and it will still be low fat.

Directions

Soak beans overnight in water. Rinse beans and check for any bad ones.

*You can cook these in the crockpot or on the stove. I opt for stove top because I mash them.

Put beans in a small stock pot, add water to cover beans generously and add the olive oil, cover. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook for 1 to 2 hours. Mine take almost 2 hours.

Drain off all the water, retaining about 1/4 cup for later. Add the garlic, salt and peppr then mash beans, I use a hand blender. If the beans are too thick you can thin them with the reserved water from earlier.

Use for making tostado's, burrito's etc.
