Wonderful Chili!! Our family loves it!
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
2 1/3 cups dry red kidney beans soaked overnight in water.
1.25 lbs. ground beef
1/2 large onion, chopped, or more if you like.
1 whole green bell pepper, cut into medium-sized pieces
3 garlic cloves, minced.
1 6 oz. can tomato paste
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
3 tsps. chili powder
2 tsps. cumin (must use)
2 tsps. ground oregano
1 tsp. salt
Tortillas
DIRECTIONS
Soak beans in water to cover 2 inches, overnight. The next day, pour off water and rinse beans well.


Place beans and 6 cups of water in 3 quart pan about 5 hours before serving.


Carefully bring beans and water to a boil, watching out that the water does not boil over. Skim off froth, and then reduce heat to above a simmer, and cook covered for 4 hours, stirring now and then.


When the 4 hours are nearly up and beans are very softened (if not softened enough, cook longer), saute onions in 1/4 cup oil in a small pan. When almost done, add minced garlic and saute a bit more.


While sauteeing onions and garlic, fry hamburger.


Slightly mash some of the beans for thickening power.


Add tomato paste and tomato sauce to the cooked beans and stir.


Add chili powder, cumin, salt, and oregano to beans and tomato mixture.


Add sauteed onion and garlic and oil in pan to the above.


Add fried hamburger and any oil in pan to the above.


Add the cut green pepper - added last so it retains some of its crunchiness.


Stir well, and keep on simmer for 20 minutes or so. Flavors will blend.


Enjoy with whole wheat tortillas and salad.

husband and son they loved it.
This was an easy recipe only I substituted canned kidney beans and it was just fine. I also used an orange pepper for sweetness to cut the spice of seasonings.Did take a lot of pots and pans but the end resukts were worth the clean up.
