Chili From Scratch

this makes about 4 servings but more if you like yours soupier. I make mine htick enough to stand a spoon in so mine yields a little less. this one is also easily doubled or tripled.

1 lb of dry pinto beans
1 lb ground turkey, beef, or pork
1 medium onion
1 bag of frozen corn or 2 cans of corn
2 cans of tomato paste
salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne, and chili powder
chipotle flavored tabasco sauce
liquid smoke

the night before put your beans and dry seasonings into your crock pot with plenty of water. you need about 3 times the amount of water as you do beans. if you don’t feel all that technical about precisely measuring your water you can also do like me and “eyeball” it. stir it yup so you don’t get seasoning balls and put it on low. Go to bed. When you get up in the morning taste a bean. It is probably still not done so turn it up on high. Test the beans every half hour or so until they are tender but not mushy. drain off most of the water and return the beans to low. now add the 2 cans of tomato paste and 4 cans of water. brown or microwave your ground turkey and throw it in too. I grilled my onion but it works fine saute’d. In to the pot it goes too. throw the corn in frozen. it will thaw quickly. Then when everything chunky is in add salt, pepper, tabasco and liquid smoke to taste. Also if it is too thick add some more water. Let it simmer until thick and delicious. Serve hot with corn bread, over rice, on a hot dog, or wrapped in a tortillia. This is also good without meat. at under a dollar a serving it is also a nice filling meal on a tight budget.
