I given up on the canned stuff and resorted to the below procedure.
Timewise, it isn't bad, and these thing keep for a week or two
Frijoles refrito norteamericano ni grasiento
1/2 large onion.
2-4 cloves of garlic
2 cup red beans
7 cups water
Saute large onion and garlic together, using your preffered method
In crockpot, put beans, sauted onions, garlic, and water, Stir. Add
tamari, rosmary, cayanne to taste. Stir. Set pot to low for 7-9 h. If
there is a lot of excess water as end of cooking, cut back on the water
Place entire contest of crockpot into large nonstick skillet(I use my
circulon or iron skillet). If beans are not hot, heat them up using
meadium heat, stirring constantly. Using either a potato masher or slotted
spatula, mash the beans for several minutes. Let the cook, stirring
occasionally, until they become a solid mass. You made need to crush a
little more if the beans are not properly pulverized.
Let cool, store in an airtight container, and use as usual.
