This is the easiest, fastest, tastiest way to prepare beans. I grew up in a Mexican family and needless to say, beans are a staple of our diet. My stepmom has been making us beans like this for years. This can be done with pinto or black beans & is the perfect thing to have on hand for quick, easy and inexpensive weeknight meals. These beans are healthy and loaded with tons of protein and fiber. You can easily refry these by mashing these in a pan with a little heated oil. I usually prepare a crockpot of beans on Monday and then have them all week in burritos, on tostadas, in bean bowls with chicken or beef....there are so many things that can be done with them. I know that the amount of salt sounds like a lot but if you use less, the beans wont have any flavor...I learned this through experience!
