I made these the other day - I wanted something simple and tasty without the overnight soaking. This recipe really delivered! I halved the recipe to only 8 servings, which is plenty for us. I made only a couple of changes - I used only 3t of salt (and it was plenty!) yellow onion as that is what I had and I used vegetable broth as the initial broth because I did not want an overwhelming 'chicken' flavor. As I added needed liquid - I used half water and half chicken stock, which worked out well. I would give this recipe 5 stars easily, if it did not call for 5T of salt. That is far too much in my opinion - next time I make it, I will even reduce my 3t to 2t as the broth adds some salt. Once the beans were ready, I mashed about 2/3 of the beans with a potato masher, added some shredded Colby Jack, a bit of milk and some hot sauce - served as "refried" without all the extra work and they tasted fantastic!
