      Thanks very much for your input! It takes a while to load on my computer, but I wasn’t sure if it was a computer problem or a site problem.

      Mmm, thank you! It was perfect for how we were feeling. It would be awesome on a day that’s too hot to cook much :)

    This looks amazing! I love how you made everything from scratch.

    The site loads fine for me…which is good because lately my Internet has been acting wonky on loading some other sites.

      Thank you!

      And thanks so much for the input! My computer has been doing weird things lately too so I had to make sure it was just my computer and not my site.

    Fast load for me! I love this dinner. Looks fantastic. I’m definitely bookmarking this to try your homemade refried beans. I’ve never made them before but would love to try. I think traditional refried beans are fried in bacon fat or something, which is where the bad rep comes from, but your version is much healthier!

    Do you have a recipe for refried beans without using a crockpot?

    • Heidi @ Food Doodles

      Sorry Alejandra, I don’t. But the idea would be the same, if you’re cooking the beans from scratch, I’d soak them overnight to reduce the cooking time, then add all the same ingredients to the pot(not adding the salt at the beginning of cooking!) and then simmer covered over low or medium low heat until very very tender. The point is to overcook the beans. I usually cook my beans almost an hour so that their tender enough for eating but for refried beans I’d probably cook them at least an hour and a half if not longer. Then puree, salt to taste and enjoy!
