Homemade "Refried" Beans

I am a lover of Mexican food!
We have some type of Mexican meal
planned at least once a week on
my menu board.
So I thought why not try making 
my own re fried beans?...

There really isn't anything hard about
making them, you just need to make sure you
have the time to allow the beans
to cook slowly and completely.
 I cooked my beans in my crock pot
for 8 hours on low, the night before I 
wanted to use them in a dish.

Homemade Re fried Beans
*Night before cook beans*
3 C. Dry Pinto Beans~rinsed
6 C. Water
2 (4 oz.) diced Green Chili's
1 Lg. Onion ~cut into large pieces
1 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Garlic Salt
1 Jalapeno Pepper~ diced *optional
Place in slow cooker and coot until tender
4-5 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

After beans have cooked drain off 
and reserve the liquid. Mash beans with a
potato masher. Or I place a small amount
of the liquid in the bottom of a blender,
then added in 2 cups of beans. I pulsed them
together to my desired consistency.
I continued doing this with the remaining beans.
Serve warm as a side dish or you can
make bean burritos, bean dip....whatever
your taste buds desire.

I really LOVE this recipe, Lark! I'm a huge fan of Mexican food too, and I'd much rather make refried beans at home than "trust" what comes out of a can! Luv my crockpot! Thanks:)
