The pintos are now ready for this week and we made refried beans..........

Recommended Posts

The consistency was different, but the taste was fresher, more depth, and yummy. The boys were a bit amazed at the dried beans, soaking, cooking, mashing process.




Oh, and dinner was the chicken boiled and the meat shredded into a casserole of rice, veggies, and cream of chicken.


The boiling water and some aromatics and a splash of vinegar are in the crock pot. There is still meat, which I may use for burrito filling. I'm thinking of some white bean soup later this week.

I wonder if Joanne remembered to rinse the beans? :tongue_smilie:




Soaked in a (probably poisonous) crock pot all night in cold water. Drained. Rinsed. Covered again in water, back in crock pot on low. Eventually added some diced ham.


Thanks for the concern. ;)

Laughing at Bill...


Joanne, you have a "lift" in your voice--it feels good to do the things you need to to provide for your fam, doesn't it? :D:grouphug: It's the little things--like beans in a crockpot. (Well-rinsed beans...);)


Well, Bill will say they're only half way to being well rinsed.:) I'm going to make beans this week and try it and see how they do- love pintos!!!
