Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 medium onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon ancho chili powder, or other chili powder

1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, preferably low-sodium, drained and rinsed

2/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth, plus more if needed

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and chili powder and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in the beans and chicken broth and cook until the beans are warmed through, about 5 minutes. Mash the beans coarsely with the back of a wooden spoon, adding more chicken broth to moisten, if needed. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in the cilantro.
