30 Day Project - Day 9

Sorry this is a day late, but our internet was down ALL day! So here it is a day late.
Tonight for dinner we had Tostadas with homemade refried beans. I used this recipe for the base, but used dried beans I cooked myself, because it's cheaper and also I can control what is in it. Did you know you can cook your beans in your crockpot, so you don't have to watch them or worry about staying at home for a few hours? Also you can freeze them in ziplock bags after they are cooked, so all you have to do is cook a big batch and have some in the freezer to pull out later. I usually put 2 cups of cooked beans per bag, which gives you about the same as a can, a little more, but 2 c. is easier to measure than 1 2/3.

I love homemade refried beans! I made some a few months ago and did the same thing-just froze them in the ziploc bag. They are super yummy and way convenient!
