This is a great recipe with a nice depth of flavor. I made some slight changes - halved the broth, used veggie broth, cooked beans in the first stage of cooking in a pressure cooker, added 1 can diced tomato instead of 2 cans stewed, used lager instead of dark beer, used a seeded serrano instead of jalapenos, also added 3/4 of a big green pepper, fake ham seasoning (I'm a vegetarian but know that flavor pairs nicely w/ beans), and about 1/4 tsp cumin. The consistency is not that of refried beans or whole cooked beans, but a looser concoction, a little like a thick soup. I served with homemade spanish rice and it was delicious. Today I'll try with quesadillas and I'm sure it'll be a smash! As others have stated, soaking the beans overnight and starting with fresher beans are very important as this drastically reduces cook times!
