Healthier refried beans - very small amount of salt compared to canned refried beans. Also, the cost per cup is much cheaper too! Healthier refried beans - very small amount of salt compared to canned refried beans. Also, the cost per cup is much cheaper too!
Number of Servings: 15


    2.5lbs Dried Pinto Beans
    10 Garlic Cloves
    2 Large Onions, sliced in half
    5 tsp Kosher Salt
    4 tsp Cumin
    2 tsp Coriander


Dump pinto beans into a 6qt crockpot. Add onion, garlic, spices and enough water to cover the beans with at least 3 inches of water on top. Cook until beans are soft, 7 hours high/10 hours low.

Remove beans from crockpot while hot and transfer to a mixer (kitchen aid if you have one with the flat beater) - make sure to retain a little water to help with mixing. Remove onions, but throw garlic into the mixer too for some flavor. Add salt and mix on low-medium beating until the beans are thoroughly mashed up.

Makes 15 one cup servings.

Number of Servings: 15

    I cut this recipe in half. I made 2 changes: 1. I added 1/2 teaspoon each crushed red pepper and chili powder. 2. I did not remove the onion before mixing using elect. mixer. As I plan on using as side dish for several meals, I kept some of the liquid in case I need to moisten as I reheat. - 1/20/10

    That's a good idea if you're going to keep some of the beans in the fridge for easy access. I froze the majority of the beans, so I didn't want them having a lot of water freezing with them. I'll have to try the red pepper and chili powder next time!
