Unfried refried beans

Submitted by: TINAT51796

Introduction

This is a healthier version than most refried bean recipes. You can make this vegetarian by using all water.And the best part of all it cooks in the crockpot! This is adapted from allrecipes.com

Ingredients

    Garlic, 5 cloves (remove)
    Onions, raw, 1 halved
    mezzetta deli sliced jalapeno peppers - 1/4 cup, 1 serving (remove)
    Water, tap, 9 cup (8 fl oz) (remove)
    3 cups dried pinto beans
    Salt, 2.5 tsp (remove)
    Pepper, black, 1.75 tsp (remove)
    *Cumin seed, .12 tsp (remove)

Directions

Rinse and drain beans.
Combine all ingredients in crock pot.
Cook on high for 8 hours, adding more water if needed.
Once the beans have cooked, strain them, and reserve the liquid. Mash the beans with a potato masher, adding the reserved water as needed to attain desired consistency.
I also like to make these and NOT mash them, and am left with tasty whole pinto beans as a great side. Also, these freeze and re-heat well, just add a bit more water to help loosen them up.
