Refried Beans

Easy to make, cheap as dirt, and mighty tasty, these beans do require over 18 hours to prepare, so plan ahead, or cook them and freeze in advance. If you opt to freeze, separate into small containers, and add some water upon thawing.

Combine these with tortillas & cheese to make great burritos.




  1. Cook Bacon at low temperature (~200° C) until firm-yet-floppy.
  2. Mince Bacon & Garlic.
  3. Chop Onion. (Size doesn't really matter, it'll be disintegrated by the time the beans are ready.)
  4. Add all ingredients to crock pot.
  5. Cook on high 12-18 hours, stirring & or mashing occasionally.
