Meatless March Meal #13: Refried Beans without the refry

Okay, so this isn't exactly a meal, but it makes enough beans to make several meals, like this one. It's so good, plus, you know exactly what's in it!

Sadly, I do not have any pictures, but this is a pretty simple recipe.

Dry pinto beans {how much depends on how much you want, just keep in mind that a little can make a lot.
1-2 Onions, chopped
Garlic, minced

1. Soak beans for 12-24 hours in a large pot. {I think 12 hours would be just fine, but it won't hurt them to soak any longer.}

2. Drain beans and put into Crock Pot and cover with water. {Keep in mind that the beans should be completely covered with water and then an extra half inch or above the beans.} Cover beans with onions, garlic, salt, and pepper.

3. Cook on LOW for 12 hours or HIGH for 8 hours, or until beans are easy to mash and water is mostly gone. When finished cooking, mash the beans and they are ready for all sorts of dishes.
