Hello lovely Food52ers! I am planning a Mexican Fiesta dinner party on Saturday (I live in Denmark and am excited to introduce my Danish friends to Mexican food). I want to make the refried beans earlier in the day. I plan on cooking the dried pinto beans in the crockpot Friday night, then fry them in some lard with onions and some of the cooking juices, process in a processor, and plop them back into the crockpot. Do you have experience with this? Will the beans stay moist enough in the crockpot after they've been fried and processed? Is there a better way to make them earlier in the day?
Thanks, as always, for your help!
