These are good! As written though I think they are bland. I've made these a few times and previously I've always had a lot of liquid left, and never needed to use much of it. I think a lot of the flavor is in the liquid. So today I used 4 cups beans and 9 cups chicken broth. Later, about 6 hours into cooking them, I had to add 1 cup of water. When I make these I use 5 garlic cloves, 2 jalepenos ( with a little bit of the seeds) 1 TBSP cumin, 2 tsp chili powder, and 1 tsp black/red pepper. I don't add salt until I am mashing them, and I just add enough until they taste good. I also shake a some of that Goya Adobo seasoning in them. These are a little spicy. I won't be giving them to our son, but my husband and I like them. I must say though, I cannot taste the cumin or chili powder, but it must add some kind of flavor right? Adding 1/8 tsp of cumin would be pointless. This time I used the blender, which worked great because I didn't have jalepeno skins in the beans, which has happened before when I used my handheld mixer. I blended everything- all the beans and liquid and they are the perfect consistency.
