Slow Cooker Not-Refried Black Beans


These healthy beans are gluten-free, soy-free and have no oil added.
Makes about 4 1/2 cups and can be frozen
I made this in my 2 1/2 quart slow cooker, but it should fit in a 2 quart as well. You can also double to use in a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker.

Step 1

Add all the ingredients to a 1 1/2 to 2 quart slow cooker except for the salt and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours (or about 4 hours on high).

Before serving add salt to taste and mash some of the beans with the back of a wooden spoon to create that refried bean texture.
