Killer Refried Beans

Start with:

  • 2# bag dried pinto beans soaked overnight

  • 1# cooked bacon

  • 2 medium onions (preferably vidalias) diced

Cover all with cold water and simmer 8 hours in a crock pot on low.

When beans are soft add:

  • 1-2 sticks of butter (no typo, I really mean 2 sticks of butter)

  • 2-4 Tbsp freshly ground cumin

  • 1-2 Tbsp Celtic salt

  • 1/2 -1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Buzz all with a hand blender or smash with a potato masher.

It will be a bit runny at first, but will thicken in time.

Eat right away or refrigerate for up to a week or so.
