{Pics to come}

Wash about two cups beans (red, pinto, chile, or a combination). Put in large soup pot and cover with two quarts water and 1 tbsp. Salt. Bring to a boil, turn off stove and allow to soak overnight.
The next day, drain and rinse beans, cover again with two quarts water, bring to a boil, then turn down and allow to simmer about two hours.

Cook 1 pound of beef and 1 diced onion until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat from meat and add to beans, then add the following ingredients:

1quart tomatoes
1can tomato juice (12 oz.)
3/4 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp. Chili powder
1/4 tsp. Garlic powder
1/2 tsp. Onion powder
1/2 tsp. Cumin (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Simmer altogether several hours until beans are nice and tender. You can adjust any of the seasonings to your taste.
Pin It!
