Slow Cooker Refried Beans $0.15 per half a cup

The two words I would use to really describe everything about this recipe is as follows…

CHEAP and EASY..and no, placing those two words in a description does not always mean a bad thing; I mean come on guys just look at my blog for proof!

I’ve become fascinated with the whole “one pot meal” idea, which for a bachelor is a godsend for the whole week. I don’t even own a dishwasher(never have) so doing dishes is a more or less meditative process for me; similar to how marathoners describe running.

So I guess what I am saying is that I like the idea of keeping it simple….simplicity. If that means creating my meal in as few pots and pans as possible i’m all for it!

This is a totally straight forward recipe for a very basic refried beans so add anything you’d like…eg. cheese, tortillas, nachos, spices/seasonings.

I enjoy showing you an example of what i’m into and letting you guys run with your own idea and variations because everyone in however small or big a way is creative and it sometimes just takes practice to make it clear to some of us. If you’d like to show me your creations send me a message…Spoon up my friends!

*Tip- Using dried beans is cheaper than canned beans. Add dried beans to a bowl and add enough water to cover the top of the beans and let it sit overnight(no gas and huge volume!).

Instructions
  1. Turn slow cooker(crock pot) on high and add your tbs of olive oil. Assemble your main ingredients.
  2. Cut up your onion and garlic.
  3. Add all of your ingredients into the slow cooker then cover and let it sit for 7-8 hours on high.
  4. After the beans have cooked for about 8 hours drain and keep the excess water and start smashing the beans adding a little bit of that saved water back into the beans until your get a nice consistency. I like mine on the thicker side but if you enjoy a smoother dish just add more water.
  5. Now wasn't that one of the easiest things you've ever made in the kitchen? I thought so great job!
