Add stock, salt, black pepper, cinnamon, and beans; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Place half of potato mixture in blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Cover opening in lid with a clean kitchen towel (to avoid splatters); blend until smooth.
