Cheater Refried Beans

It has been an extremely busy summer filled with planting, replanting, work, and summer camps (for the Monkey).  It has, also, been filled with farmer's markets, which in this house means leftover sample jars of jams and jellies that need to be used up.

These jars are from my mom and aunt's business, Hundred Acre Farm. They added a fourth market this summer, which has increased the number of little jars in the fridge. The fruit ones get ten eaten easily enough. The herb and pepper ones not so much since I am really the only one in this house that likes them. This recipe was born from trying to figure out what to do with those jars.

Cheater Refried Beans

1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 can pinto beans, drained & rinsed
4 oz. habanero gold jelly (or other spicy jelly)

Dump in your small crock pot, and cook on low for three hours. Take your potato masher, and mash them to your desired consistency. Serve warm with rice or in a tortilla. Makes 4-5 servings.

  1. I'm not big on spicy jelly, but those sound good... and easy. Love that you used half black beans. I just may give these a go....
