This version of Refried Beans is a very basic rendition. They aren’t as unhealthy as some varieties, but every bit as delicious. There’s no lard, or pork, making this variety vegan as written. It’s also made in a slow cooker, so you can set it in the morning and make them right before dinner. “Refried” Beans are very easy to make and much better for you if you do! Try them! You’ll love them!
What You’ll Need:
1 small package of dry pinto beans, rinsed and soaked overnight
1 1/2 red onions, chopped
A pinch of sea salt
A pinch of cayenne pepper
A pinch of black pepper
