Having lived with a Mexican family (Jalisco) for over one year, I know what REAL refried beans should taste like, and this recipe takes the cake! Some changes I made to make it taste a bit more authentic is I did 1 whole jalapeno instead of half, 1/4 teaspoon cumin instead of 1/8, and added 3 tablespoons of paprika, and 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. I also cooked the 2 lbs of beans for 10 hours instead of 8 hours on high. Mi familia LOVED it! We will be making our "refried" beans this way from now on! ^_^
Also forgot to mention, the broth alone is fantastic for those whom participate in long-term water or juice fasting! Lots of natural protein, it's liquid, and it's delicious!
