if the beans become too thick as they sit, thin them out with a little water (water? water? why not tequila….)

Stir in beans and broth. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to medium-low. Crush beans with a potato masher and cook until soupy, 5 minutes. Stir in lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Serve with cheese and chile slices.

Oooh, yum. Sounds really good. I don't have the last few issues because we are moving next month, and I didn't want to renew my subscription to deal with it. I haven't been able to find the last couple of issues in stores though, and my goto spot for them, Sam's Club, hasn't had them. Booo. I'll have to look for them to pop up on eBay.
