Equipment

  • Slow Cooker
  • strainer
  • potato masher
  • microwave safe plate

Ingredients

Refried Beans

  • 1 onion peeled and halved
  • 3 cups can pinto beans rinsed and dried off (you can also use Black Beans)
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • teaspoon ground cumin
  • 5 cups water
  • 4 cups chicken broth

Burritos

  • 24 tortillas (I used whole wheat)
  • 3 cups shredded cheese
  • slow cooker refried beans

Instructions

Refried Beans

  • Place the onion, rinsed beans, garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin into a slow cooker. Pour in the water and chicken broth and stir to combine.
  • Cook on high for 8 hours, adding more water as needed. Note: if more than 1 cup of water has evaporated during cooking, then the temperature is too high.
  • Once the beans have cooked, strain them, and reserve the liquid. Mash the beans with a potato masher, adding the reserved water as needed to attain desired consistency.

Burritos

  • Spoon some beans onto the tortilla. Add as much cheese as you would like.
  • Fold in two sides of the tortilla then roll the rest of the tortilla. Next place each burrito and place it on a 12x12" sheet of foil. Fold in both sides of the foil and roll the tortilla in it. Stick them in the freezer when you are done.
  • When you are ready to eat one, take it out of the foil and stick it on a plate. Microwave the burrito for about 2 minutes or until the burrito is heated all the way through.
  • It made about 18 burritos.

Notes

  • Make sure to use canned beans and not dry beans
