Easy Slow-Cooker Refried Beans

In the summer months, many people turn to outdoor cooking in order to keep the temperature down inside their homes. Using a slow-cooker (crockpot) can also help you avoid turning that oven on. Here is a recipe that really works!

Easy Slow-Cooker Refried Beans
found online

1 onion, peeled and halved
2 c pinto beans, dried, rinsed
1 jalapeno, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 pinch cumin
6 c water 

Combine all ingredients in slow cooker.

Cook on high for 8 hours, or overnight while you are sleeping.

Remove the bigger onion chunks and drain the excess liquid. If desired, save excess liquid until the final product is desired consistency.

Mash remaining beans with a potato masher and voilĂ ! You have homemade refried beans.
