Refried Beans

I finally learned how to make these well.  It's so cheap to make refried beans from dried pintos and my whole family loves them with homemade tortillas.

Refried Beans in the Crock Pot
2 lb dry pinto beans
10 cups water
1 onion, finely diced (or half an onion tossed in, and pull it out after)
3 T minced garlic
2 t cumin
1 t pepper
1-2 T salt

Mix in the crock pot and cook on high 6 hours.  Mash wit ha potato masher until the desired consistency.  Sometimes I need all the water and sometimes I don't, so I usually scoop some out and save it to see if it's needed, rather than risk the beans being too runny.
