Quick and easy. I love the texture and flavor the chicken broth gives to this sidedish. Serve with other sidedishes... chopped lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream. All will take the "heat" out of your Mexican dinner.

I looked for this recipe when I need to make a 7 layer dip over the summer. I have no bought refried beans again. I use this for burritos and fajitas. Thank you for posting.
