Thanks for the recipe. This sounds very yummy and will be a great substitution for canned refried beans. I will use homemade broth to make sure the sodium level stays low.

1/2 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, low-sodium, drained and rinsed
2/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth, plus more if needed
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Saute the chopped onion in a arge skillet you have sprayed with Pam over medium heat.
Saute about 5 minutes until soft.

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

Does anyone have or know where I can find a recipe for fat-free refried beans? I want to make my refrieds at home to be able to lower the sodium content since the canned versions have too much sodium in them.
