A spicy white bean chili, totally awesome.
Here's a bowl of smoky, spicy, succulent beans you'll want to make a meal of, though they are great as a side dish, too! Yeah, there are quite a few ingredients and they do take a bit of time to prepare, but you get enough for a big "do" or enough to freeze in serving-sized quantities and eat for a long time. They are a staple around here for summer get-togethers as well as for winter snow days. This recipe contains both regular and faster pressure-cooker instructions. (See Footnotes)
Slow cooker recipe. Great comfort food. Beans, meat and plenty of natural spice. Serves as a main or side dish. Great for family gathering.
Believe it or not, some burgers are meant to be eaten with a knife and fork. One of my favorites is that way - this one! It's a grilled burger served open-faced and slathered with a good helping of chili that's homemade especially for this application. It takes a little effort to put it all together, but nothing about it is difficult...and it is soooo worth it! Serve with an ice-cold beer and a little greenery on the side.
Everyone thinks of Texas when they think of Chili, but we eat lots of it up here in Minnesota where it's cold 9 months out of the year. I like this version because you don't have to do much measuring and it sticks to your ribs real good.
