Crockpot Refried Beans

These beans basically cook themselves. I only mashed half of them and saved the other half for tomorrow's dinner. The recipe I found makes twice as much as I did but I only have a small crockpot so I halved it.

1 cup rinsed dried pinto beans ( I didn't soak mine)
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/2 diced jalapeno
2 cloves chopped garlic
1/2 tsp black pepper
one pinch of cumin
3 cups water

Combine all ingredients into crockpot and cook for 6 hours on high. *the original recipe said 8 hours but mine didn't take that long. Drain excess liquid and mash beans with potato masher or fork. enjoy!


  1. Try adding a head of roasted garlic at the start, it changes the flavor and is really good!

    1. Yum! I will definitely try this next. thanks!
