    Authentic? No. Chicken bouillon, dried chili powder and garlic powder are not authentic ingredients. Real garlic, a real ancho chili and homemade chicken stock is authentic. Change the title, it’s wrong.

    I tried just to make some dried pinto beans in my pressure cooker for the first time and they came out so squishy that I just blended them all up in my food processor and then cooked them with all your ingredients. I added a little cumin and lime juice and I just can't quit eating it!

    Perfect refried beans! This was my first time making them and they were much better than canned. I added 1 tsp cumin also. I soaked them overnight and all day and they only had to cook for about 3 hours. I had to add 4 cups of water to boil, no way would 2 be enough. I uncovered the pot for the last 30 minutes and they thickened just enough. Thanks!
