Chili With Beans


Chili With Beans

Beans and legumes are some of the most underrated foods on the planet. They are excellent sources of dietary fiber, protein, B vitamins, and many other important vitamins and minerals. There is good evidence that they can help reduce blood sugar, improve cholesterol levels and help maintain a healthy gut.

Procedures : Contributed to the echo by Michael Gallagher Bob,
here is my variation of a chili recipe with beans in it
. If the people here don’t like beans with their
chili, I’ll give a substitution. DON’T change
anything, for this is the way you should make
authentic Texas chili–not the cheap imitation stuff.

Wash beans in colander and soak overnight. Wash again
next day, and place in large chili pot. Cover with
water about 1/2 to 3/4 inch over beans; simmer,
covered, for about 2-1/2 hours or until done.

If substituting beans with the lean beef sirloin,
brown the meat 1 pound at a time, preferably in a
non-stick skillet without any oil. Place the meat in
large chili pot. You will also need 1 more 12 ounce
can of tomato sauce and 1 to 2 10 ounce cans of
fat-skimmed beef stock. You will add the extra can of
tomato sauce and the can of beef stock in the next
paragraph of directions.

Brown meat and place in large saucepan. Add all of the
other ingredients and spices. Mix well. Simmer,
covered, for 1 hour. When beans are done, add contents
of saucepan to chili pot and simmer for 30 to 45
minutes. Makes 15 to 20 servings, 225 calories each
(205 with out the oil). Salt and pepper to taste.
