1/3 cup chicken broth
2 slices bacon, diced
1 tablespoon adobo sauce (from canned chipotle chiles) - optional
2 green onions, sliced
- In small saucepan, heat chicken broth with diced bacon gently to render some of the bacon fat, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in pinto beans and adobo sauce, if using, and heat through gently.
- Garnish with green onions to serve.
