2 cups dried beans
1 onion chopped
4-6 cloves of garlic chopped
2 Tb tomato paste
2 bay leaves

Place the beans in a bowl of water and let soak 6-12 hours
In a pot over medium high heat, saute the onions until they start to become translucent, then add the garlic and continue to saute until the garlic is fragrant. Toss in the tomato paste, bay leaves and a bunch of oregano and cook for 1 minute. Add the beans and water and bring to a boil, (If using a crock pot, move everything to the crockpot now) reduce heat to low and simmer covered until the beans are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.

Sounds tasty. I keep meaning to try your recipes, but I haven't been cooking a whole lot. On account of not eating a whole lot lately. Go figure.

Don't suppose you have a favorite crock-pot beef chili recipe?

Alas I don't. I don't even have a good non-crock-pot chili recipe which makes me very sad...

I really prefer ground turkey chili, of the midwestern soupy variety. Reply to this if you want the recipe.

OK see my recipe at


Saute a chopped onion in some oil, add garlic when almost done. I do this because if I start with garlic, I invariably burn it. When you smell the garlic (before it burns!) throw in approx 1 lb of your favorite ground meat. I usually use turkey, I like the texture better than ground beef. Haven't tried pork - do NOT use chicken. Stir and cook until it is cooked through. Add spices to taste (I use cumin, a hot chile molido that someone brought me from Santa Fe, oregano) then I add 2 cans of Ro-Tel Mexican Fiesta tomatoes (otherwise I'd use the regular Ro-Tel and add cilantro and lime juice). You can also toss in chopped fresh peppers to taste - jalapeno, habanero, whatever. I also add approx 1 cup frozen corn kernels and 1 can drained and rinsed beans (usually small white ones, but whatever) Simmer. Serve with rice if you want.
