    Goose Hollow Farm's Note:

    The chicken stock in these beans adds a wonderful favor without being overpowering and lets the flavor of the beans stand out. Serve them on the side with enchiladas, refry them, use them in dips, or serve with rice. This recipe is a combination from the Sunset Mexican Cookbook and the recipe on the bag of beans. For the stock, I use prepared chicken base instead of canned stock. I would not use bullion because it would be too salty. These put canned beans to shame!

      I have been looking for a recipe that was both healthy and matched restaurant-quality Mexican beans--I have officially found it. Thanks for posting! I used olive oil and low sodium chicken broth.
