Trucker's Beans....

It's called "Trucker's Beans" but it looks quite good and can be healthy using turkey or tofu.

It's not exactly a chili, but it is close.



I'd make in a crock pot and let it simmer a couple hours.

That looks interesting.
I'll have to come up with some way to make it in a smaller quantity without opening all those cans up...

I like to boil my own beans after soaking, I buy about 6 types (1 pound each) then soak overnight then boil them.

Then, I use them to make different dishes from soups, chili, refried beans, and I freeze some.

I'd prefer doing this instead of the can beans, although, can beans are quicker and easier.

i'm going to be making chili this week in a similar way. thanks for the vid, maxamus.

i have a london broil that i got 2 for 1, so after eating the first one as a steak, i froze the second.

it'll get defrosted, cubed, then browned with onions and garlic. next, i add a large can of crushed tomatoes, and cans of red, navy, and black beans. also some diced green, orange and red bell peppers.

i make my own chili powder from dried chipotle and mulato peppers, and add that along with ground cumin.

the liquid is adjusted with a little beef stock, and it simmers for a while until everything comes together into a chili or thick stew.

btw, max, i noticed you're in nyc? whereabouts? i work on the upper west side and live in jersey.

When I am cooking for myself, I have large rectangular plastic food boxes that I fill with beans - each holds about 2 pounds. I just scoop out what I need when I am making something. It makes life as a single person much easier. If I have to open 5 cans to get five different kinds of beans I find that I cannot eat everything before it spoils - or I have to eat the dish 3 times a day until it is gone so that it doesn't spoil.

chili freezes pretty well, so i make a few quarts of it at a time, eat some, then freeze a quart or two to eat at work a few weeks later.

Thanks. I'll look for that next time I'm out. I had no idea they made such a concoction. I obviously don't spend enough time in the bean aisle
