I have read discussions about these beans for long enough. It was time I try them and get over my fear of using dried beans. Wow, what a simple and tasty recipe! I added all the ingredients (only used 2 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 whole jalapeño, and added the cumin) to the crockpot and at about hour 6 the juices were at a slow boil around the edges of the crockpot. I just let them boil as there was still plenty of juice. I drained them at the 8 hour mark, saving the juice, and mashed them. The first night we had them, no extra juice was needed as the beans were warm. After refrigerating them and reheating I needed to add some of the extra juice I had saved. My DH, who isn't a huge fan of refried beans loved these. I froze 3 containers for another time. A fantastic recipe, simple to make, and one that I will use again.
