Food Storage Back to Basics: Beans-That Musical Fruit!

in this videoLearn more about the basics of beans and some of the great things you can do with them!


white bean chili

I love the green chilis and southwestern flavor and the fact that it’s done in a slow cooker! Make sure you serve it with some great corn bread.

Southwestern White Chili

1 C. Chopped Onion (1/4 C. dehydrated onions)
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 t. ground cumin
1 t. dried oregano, crushed
1/4 t. ground red pepper
3 15 1/2-ounce cans great northern (white) beans, drained and rinsed (1 lb. (2-1/2 C.) dried white beans, cooked and rinsed)
2 4-ounce cans diced green chile peppers
4 C. chicken broth
3 C. chopped cooked chicken (3 10 oz. cans of chicken-you can also use the water from the can as part of your chicken broth)
2 C. shredded Monterey Jack cheese (8ounces)
Sour Cream

1. In a 3 1/2 to 6-quart slow cooker place the onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, red pepper, beans 2 cns chile peppers, broth and cooked chicken. Stir to combine.

    Can you add dry beans that have been soaked and let them cook in the recipe? Same with the chicken, can you put raw chicken in and let it cook? It may add some additional cook time in the crock pot. What are your thoughts??? Can you tell I am all about simple?

    I made this for dinner tonight. It was so YUMMY! I stumbled across this pressure cooker bean chart a while back. I love it because you don’t have to pre-soak. http://www.healthyhighways.com/ut-tables.shtml#beans
