This slow cooker refried bean recipe is simple but adding butternut squash amps up the nutrition. The chipotle brings a little spicy and lots of smokiness.
The cilantro and lime give it a fresh flavor that you’ll love it in your favorite tacos, burritos and more!
You probably have some Winter squash on your t-day menu. If you make an extra cup and purée it, you are ready to make these beans.
If you don’t have time to make the beans now, go ahead and freeze the extra squash in 1 cup portions so it will be ready to go when you want to make them.
You can use pumpkin, acorn, or kuri in place of the butternut. But think about doing something different and use butternut where you usually use pumpkin or sweet potato. After all, Winter squash need some love around the holidays too.
