"No need to soak these beans! Very simple. These pinto beans are somewhat like refried beans without the frying. They are creamy and easy to make in no time. No messy clean up with these beans"

  1. Combine water, condensed chicken broth, beans, garlic, onion, and crushed red pepper flakes into a large saucepan; season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer; cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are soft, about 3 1/2 hours. You may need to add additional water to keep the beans from drying out.
  2. Mash cooked beans with a potato masher to desired consistency. Stir in mozzarella and pico de gallo before serving.

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...

I used the recipe to cook beans to make refried beans. I mainly just followed the measurements. About half way through cooking I had to add about 4 more cups of water because they were getting t...

1 TBSP Salt is adequate. I also add 1/2 lb of bacon. The best beans ever!!! Also I have never gotten to the "add cheese and pico part" just fine without as well. @ TBSP Pepper since they remo...

I tasted these beans after mashing and decided they were already so delicious, why add the mozzarella & pico de gallo? I halved the recipe, added a chicken bouillon cube, just added salt to tas...
