  • Summary

    These pinto beans couldn't be easier to make in a slow cooker. Any that you don't use within a few days can be stored in a container or resealable bag and kept in the freezer. To turn whole pintos into a healthy version of refried beans, saute a little onion and garlic in olive oil until tender, add the beans and some of the cooking liquid, and cook for a few minutes. Then, mash with a fork or puree in a blender.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound dried pinto beans (2 1/2 cups), rinsed, picked over for tiny stones
    • 7 1/2 cups wter
    • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
