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.

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.
