Don't you just LOVE crockpot recipes?? You come home, and smell dinner waiting!
EASY Crockpot Refried Beans
2 cups dried pinto beans (rinsed off in cold water first)
6 cups water (or chicken broth)
Garlic cloves (or around 2 Tbsp minced garlic from the jar)
Salt and Pepper to taste
OPTIONAL: 3 Tbsp left over bacon lard (using the word grease is just not cool)
Just dump in all ingredient and turn on HIGH for 6-8 hours.
You can either leave the beans whole or mash them with a potato masher.
One of the many uses I get out of the beans (other than just eating them "as is") is making Bean and Cheese Burritos. They are so simple - I mean you just add some of the beans and sprinkle on cheese, fold up in a burrito and serve! These can be great kid lunch ideas too. Freeze them in batches then put them in the kids lunches to be microwaved at school. EASY! (and it's not another PB&J)
