Seasond pinto beans. Made these tonight and drained and mashed them up for refried beans. Make sure to save some liquid to add back in so your refried beans aren't too stiff.

I have been doing this for a loong time now (pressure cooker method) and always have a stock of my favorites -- black-eyed peas; black turtle beans, chick peas (garbanzo beans) and white beans in the freezer. I can't even stand the taste of the canned ones!

    With my pressure cooker, esp for black eye, navy and turtle beans, I basicially just bring it to pressure for 2 minutes MAX, turn off the heat and let it reduce. after that, drain the beans, rinse in cold water through the colander, and let them dry out in the colander overnight. I freeze them in the 2 cup portions

I would choose dry beans over canned beans any day. Besides being much cheaper, they are also healthier and more delicious. Cooking and freezing dry beans makes them super convenient as well!
