Here's what you'll need:
1 lb dry beans, sorted and rinsed
6 cups water or stock
1 onion, roughly chopped
1 jalapeno, seeds and ribs removed, diced
3 cloves garlic, sliced or crushed
Cumin to taste
Salt & pepper to taste
Now let's get to the truly overwhelming instructions. This one might really push your kitchen skills to the edge (not) ...
First, dump the beans into your slow cooker.
Then add in your onion, garlic, and jalapeno.
Now toss in the seasonings.
And the water/stock ...
Allow the mixture to cook for 6-8 hours on high, or until the beans are soft.
Now smash them!
Congrats! You just made ridiculously easy, super healthy, homemade "refried" beans!! Celebrate with a taco...
