This is so good!!! I've never used bean broth before, and this was a great first recipe for it. I used pinto bean broth. I didn't have anise, but it was delicious without it. So yummy! I'm so glad I found a recipe that uses bean broth because I hated the idea of throwing it out. Will definitely be making this again in the future!
