Once Pork is done, shred the pork in the crock pot and let it absorb all the liquid. Keep crock pot on warm while you make the rest of the items.

Homemade Frijoles Negros Refritos (Black Refried Beans)

1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
⅓ cup water vegetable or chicken broth
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp ground coriander
¼ tsp salt or more to taste
⅛ tsp freshly ground black pepper or to taste
½ TBS lime juice
1 TBS fresh cilantro chopped (optional)


Instructions​

  • In a saucepan over medium heat add water or broth.
  • Add onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  • Add beans and stir well.
  • Bring mixture to a boil.
  • After mixture boils reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 5-7 minutes.
  • During cooking, use a potato masher or fork to “mash” the beans.
  • The more beans you “mash” the less chunky your mixture will be.
  • Continue cooking and mashing until you have reached your desired thickness and consistency.
  • Add chopped fresh cilantro and lime juice and stir to combine.
  • Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes covered (if you leave it uncovered the beans will continue to thicken).
  • Serve warm with tacos!

Yep I'd hit that hard. I would have to smoke my pork first though lol. I've seen the spicy ranch. Is it good? Nice work bud

Yes, the Spicy Ranch is good! And you can totally make the pork in the smoker. I use the spicy Ranch on the Mississippi Chicken Thighs too!

Thank you!

Nice work Charlie . For me the crunch of the cabbage makes it .

My Son came home with some new ones last week . Hidden valley " Ranch night " One was taco . It's really good .


Thank you.. the cabbage was a must have.. it definitely needed that crunch! I probably could have made some sort of slaw with it, but with all the other flavors going on it would have been hard to find something to fit in LOL
