Black and Red Bean Chili c2014 TRC 1.jpg

What do you call a bean in the snow? A chili bean!

Who doesn't love a hot bowl of chili? Whether its served with cornbread or over buttered rice or topped with shredded cheese and sour cream, there's something special about it.

It's that time of the year that calls for this hearty, easy, yummy, get in my belly dish!


Serves 7-8

<making the chili>

  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat.

  • Add ground beef, break it up and brown until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

  • Add onions and peppers, stir and cook about 2 minutes.

  • Add red kidney beans, black beans, Rotel, tomato paste, water, chili powder and cumin.

  • Mix and bring to a boil, boil about 1 minute.

  • Cover and reduce heat to low, simmer for 1 hour.
