Easy Refried Beans

If you took the time to compare the price (and calories!) of prepared canned refried beans to the same amount of dried beans, you might cry.

Cook Time: 4-6 hours in crock pot  


3 cups dried beans (will depend on size of crock pot)
1 tsp of baking soda (to reduce the toots!)
1 onion
2 peppers, mild or hot
1 bunch cilantro
1 tomato
2 tablespoons bacon grease, oil, lard, or similar fat (I just toss in a few pieces of uncooked bacon)
Salt to taste


Soak beans overnight in water-filled crock pot.

Drain water, rinse beans, and add water to cover beans. If you are going to be cooking them for a while, you may want to add extra water.

Chop veggies. Add remaining ingredients to pot.

Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Remove from heat, use hand or potato masher to mash up beans.


Reheat if necessary.
