Combine all the in ingredients in a sauce pan on low to medium heat. Mix well and then once the beans are warm mash them up. I use a potato masher but rock out. I pretty much just cook it until the Onion flakes have re-hydrated.
Number of Servings: 16

Didn't see onion flakes listed. I love spicy foods so this will satisfy my cravings for hot foods. You might also try putting in 1/2 can of rotel tomatoes. - 11/21/09

Wow! I just added the onion flakes. Thanks for pointing that out! Great suggestion with the tomatoes! I will be trying that soon...
Mary, the nutritional yeast makes them cheezy. I like all of the ingredients listed and followed the recipe exactly and did not care for this at all. Something about the flavor combo tasted sour and off. I will try some other combos since I love beans and I love spicy food. Thanks. - 11/8/10
