**This recipe makes a lot, but you can also use it to make bean burritos, bean dip, topping for a salad, etc. You will definitely want to use a large 5-6 quart slow cooker for this recipe.
do these beans freeze well?
These beans do freeze extremely well. Because this recipe makes so much, we recommend freezing your extras unless you plan to eat them within the next three to four days.
They stay good in the fridge for about 5 days, but in the freezer, they last for a few months.
To freeze them, we put them in an airtight container, and place them in the freezer. To thaw them, we usually put them in the fridge 48-30 hours before serving them.
We don’t recommend microwaving them frozen, because a lot of extra moisture can get in, and make them more runny. We recommend thawing, then heating them up.
How to make Refried Beans in the Instant Pot
- 1 pound of beans
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 teaspoon of garlic
- Garlic Salt to taste
- 1 teaspoon Cumin
- 4 cups Chicken Broth

Put all ingredients in the pot. Put the lid on and turn the knob to “sealing.” Push “Manual” and move the time up to 45 minutes. Let it release on its own for 15 minutes.
