- 3 cups of dry pinto beans (rinsed)
- 1 onion, diced
- 9 cups of water
- 5 tsp salt
- 1 3/4 tsp pepper
- 2 Tbsp minced garlic
- 1/8 tsp ground cumin
- Put all the ingredients in a crockpot and cook on high for about 8 hours.
- After they are done, drain all of the liquid out and SAVE THE LIQUID!!
- Mash beans with a potato masher or whatever you mash with. Add liquid, a bit at a time, to desired consistency, but remember you want them a little runny because they thicken over time. (makes about 6 cups).
