Refried white kidney beans

White kidney beans are great if you are watching carbs. They have a property in them that helps block your body from absorbing some of the carbs that you eat. It is actually the main ingredient in many commercial carb blockers. I find canned white kidney beans at Trader Joe's.

1 can white kidney beans drained and rinsed
1 c. Chicken broth
1 jalapeno
Montreal steak seasoning to taste

- Combine the beans, broth, and jalapeno (washed but not cut. It will give off flavor but not spice) in a pan.
- allow to simmer stirring occasionally. As the beans break down you can remove the jalapeno and smash the beans with the back of your spoon. If you like a smoother texture you can use an immersion blender. When it looks almost the consistency you want remove from heat. They will continue to thicken slightly as they cool.
