Slow-Cooker Refried Beans

A while back, I published a recipe for refried beans, but, to be honest, I never felt that it was quite right. I have now completely revamped it, making it easier, healthier, and tastier — the perfect combination! So, whether you're celebrating Cinco de Mayo, looking for Vegan/Vegetarian/Dairy Free/Gluten Free recipes, or just like eating tex-mex-y stuff, you'll want to give this a try.
