Crock Pot Recipes - super easy refried beans in the crock pot

I love sharing crock pot recipes!

We eat Mexican food at least once a week.  Refried beans always accompany any Mexican meal in our home.

I usually make a big pot and freeze half for another meal in tupperware or a gallon size freezer bag.

Here is a super easy one to add to your crock pot recipes!

I usually cook 2 lb bag of pinto beans.
  • Dry pinto beans
  • onion powder to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • chili powder to taste
  • salt to taste
  • cumin (I use a lot)
  • beef bouillon (4 cubes)
  1. Soak beans in water overnight
  2. drain beans
  3. place beans in crock pot and submerge in water at least an inch and half over beans
  4. put all spices and beef bouillon cubes and cook on low about 8 hours
  5. Drain beans and save about 2 cups of bean juice
  6. Use electric mixer to mash beans and add a little bit of water to make creamy.
  7. You might need to add salt or other spices at this time.
  8. Serve

I usually add additional spices while mashing since I don’t measure. You can stick left overs in crock pot to warm up on low and add just a tad of water.
