Easy simple refried beans

Want refried like beans but no time to cook, mash , and then fry.  This easy crock pot recipe give you creamy refried like beans with the fuss of frying.

Cook beans in crock pot for 6-8 hours.  I usually put in in morning before work. Fill water to the brim, you may need add more water as cooking continues, they soak up a lot of liquid.

When cooked till tender, pour from crock to large pot and mash with potato masher.  You won't mash all, don't worry this adds texture and homemade beans are rarely completely smooth unless you puree.

After, you have mashed cooked beans, here is the secret , add mayonnaise.  Yep, not to much you do not want a mayo flavor  , just the fat, creaminess, and color.  Cook on low for another 30 minutes be sure to mix all the mayo in.  How much mayo, well, that is the secret....guess you have to get my book when it comes out....LOL

This easy fool proof technique will give you creamy and nicely colored beans. No frying needed.  The mayo adds just enough fat and creaminess along with a nice color. ( be sure to use Best Food's mayo)
