    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

    1. 1
      Place the onion, rinsed beans, jalapeno, garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin into a slow cooker.
    2. 2
      Pour in the water and stir to combine. Cook on High for 8 hours, adding more water as needed.
    3. 3
      Note: if more than 1 cup of water has evaporated during cooking, then the temperature is too high.
    4. 4
      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.

      Made as directed my family felt these had very little flavor. Since this makes a rather large quantity, and I didn't want to throw the leftovers away, I wound up doctoring them a bit with 1/2 chopped medium onion, 1 tbsp. chili powder, 1 tsp. each of cumin, garlic powder and oregano, 1/2 tsp. salt and I added a bit of vegetable broth during the reheat. With those changes we were quite happy with them.

      I can't believe I forgot to review this! These were lovely, and smelled so good as they simmered away in the crockpot! It was so hard to keep the lid on and not lift it up for a better sniff! I skipped the jalepeno to make this more kid friendly. I didn't add enough of the cooking liquid afterwards, so they were very thick--especially leftovers--but that is my own fault. These kept very well in the fridge for the better part of a week. I've never had any luck making refried beans that I liked better than Rosarita's (canned), until now! Thanks so much for sharing, cookiedog!
