"Unlike the mush of brown on your plate at the restaurant, these beans have color, texture, and FRESH ingredients! Literally as easy as 1-2-3! Feel free to top with cheese or cilantro!"

  1. Heat olive oil in a nonstick pan; cook and stir red onion, cilantro, garlic, and chili powder until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Cook and stir pinto beans and about 2/3 cup chicken broth into onion mixture until heated through, about 5 minutes. Mash pinto beans with the back of a spoon. Add remaining chicken broth and simmer until desired consistency.



I did not add the full amount of chicken broth, I mashed the pinto beans until they were the consistancy I was looking for. There was a little too much chili powder for us, when I make this agai...

Very good, we enjoyed these! I think next time I'll add some minced jalapeno.

Good recipe! I added some salt and a little lime juice. Also threw in some whole black beans and topped each serving with shredded pepper jack.

Yes, it is fabulous. Adding the chicken broth makes for a richer consistency. I used hot water and it was fine.
