Ingredients

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 serrano chile, whole

One 15-ounce can pinto beans, preferably organic, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the serrano chile and cook until the chile begins to brown, about 1 minute. Add the beans and chicken broth.
