What I do is soak the beans overnight, cook them, and then I measure them out into 2 c containers (with some of the liquid), and freeze them. I do this with garbanzo beans as well. That when the mood strikes to make hummus or something else with beans, all I have to do is pull the amount I want out of the freezer. I do find there is a difference between canned and soaked dry beans...the canned ones are too mushy for my taste.

And great material for the Blazing Saddles campfire scene...

to be sure, just like there are different types of meaty and vegetable-y tomato sauces, there's different chillis for different dishes. all meat, meat and beans, meat beans and peppers, and so on.


chilli has come that far. "authentic" is lost in it's posterity.

I'm interested in your results.
Who puts beans in chili?

If you eat a bowl of my chili, better eat some ice cream afterwards. The fun begins the next day.
