One Pot Pinto Beans

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
This was so good and so simple- it totally made my day. I had already started boiling my 2 lb package of pinto beans when I got onto the site to look up recipes. Looked for chili recipes, but found this one. I'm so glad I did! I didn't have red pepper flakes, enough mozzarella cheese or any pico de gallo. Used yellow onion instead of red; Mrs Dash Extra Spicy instead of red pepper flakes; substituted quality pepper jack cheese for mozzarella and added 1/4 c. medium salsa (which probably added nothing- I just didn't want it to get too thin by adding more). I had the chicken broth and garlic on hand and after the cooking time, I used my food processor - this made the best refried beans I have ever eaten in my life. I put 5 two cup containers full in the freezer and have about 4 cups in the frig for the family. I used it for bean burritos last night- really great! This recipe is a keeper!
