We love chili in this household but unfortunately we don't have time to soak beans all the time. Below is a simple recipe that is high protein, good fiber and tastes darn good. Feel free to use, abuse and tweak this recipe to your heart's desire.
Three cans of low salt kidney beans.
Two cans of black beans.
Two medium red onions.
Cumin to taste.
Garlic to taste.
Two pounds of spicy pork sausage.
A can or jar of your favorite salsa.
About a half a cup of brown sugar.
Here is how I do it. Dump all of the beans, salsa and brown sugar into a decent-size pot. Stir it up and throw it on medium heat. From there and this is really important, use a cast iron pan to cook the sausage and then add it to the beans. Then carmelize the onions and the habanero in the same cast iron pan that you used for the sausage. Add it to the mix! Dump in the Vampire repellent and the cumin until you are happy. Slowly bring it up to a boil stirring very regularly. Once you have a decent boil turn it down to a simmer and let it simmer for at least 4 hours. Enjoy!
Sounds delicious and quick to prepare, thanks for the recipe. The use of sausage instead of ground beef or ground turkey is something I need to try.
Based upon a recent post, it is best that you used canned beans and didn't describe how you "soaked your beans".
