    I just made the "refried beans without the refry" from

    1 onion, peeled and halved
    3 cups dry pinto beans, rinsed
    1/2 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
    2 tablespoons minced garlic
    5 teaspoons salt
    1 3/4 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
    1/8 teaspoon ground cumin, optional
    9 cups water

    Place the onion, rinsed beans, jalapeno, garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin into a slow cooker. Pour in the water 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.

    **I didn't add any salt at all. I used a chicken bullion cube instead (just tossed it in the pot). I also added a whole tsp of cumin, and other reviewers added some chili powder too. I used a can of chopped green chilies instead of a jalapeño because that's what i had. I did half black half pinto beans and it honestly came out FANTASTIC. It would have been good with a bay leaf while simmering.

    Very flexible recipe, makes enough to have now plus freeze for later, low in calories (allrecipes says 15 servings are 139 calories each, but when I added it to MFP it was only ~90 calories for 10 IDK who to believe but either way it's healthy low cal. With rice, it makes a full protein.

    Easy Chili

    1lb lean ground beef... 93/7 or higher.
    1lb ground turkey
    1 medium jar of picante sauce- med, mild, or hot
    3-4 cans of beans. I prefer one of each. Red Kidney, pinto, black beans, and garbanzo beans.

    Turn slow cooker onto low and add picante sauce and beans.
    Brown the ground beef and strain what little fat there may be, add to slow cooker.
    Brown turkey and add to slow cooker.
    Put lid on and cook for at least 2-4 hours. I actually let mine cook for 6-8 hours while I am at work and it just absorbs the flavors more the longer you cook it.

    Top with favorite topping- shredded cheese, a small amount of sour cream, or eat with crackers or cornbread.


    My boyfriend loves this Chili, and it is packed with lots of protein.
