DELICOUS, NO SOAKING REQUIRED, Refried Beans! This easy homemade recipe cooks dry pinto beans in the slow cooker! We always make these healthy crockpot beans for authentic Mexican meals, I will never use canned beans again! Make sure to add shredded cheddar cheese on top!
I love refried beans. Not only do they make the perfect side with your favorite Mexican dish (for us, usually tacos!), but they make a pretty great meal by themselves too! Have you ever had a bowl of perfectly cooked refried beans with a little shredded cheese on top? It’s delicious!
These homemade refried beans are made from dry pinto beans. Dry beans are not only super cheap but in my opinion make the best refried beans. Did you know growing your own dry beans in the garden is easy too? These refried beans are extra special to me because they are made with our own yellow eye beans we grew in the garden last Summer! Feel free to use regular dry pinto beans or yellow eye beans for this recipe, they both make delicious refried beans.
