The other day I wanted to make chili and found I had no red beans in the house. So, I got a little creative.
2 cans of regular pork and beans undrained
3 cups of salsa [mild or medium depending on your spice preference]
¼ tsp dry red pepper flakes
A few shakes of hot sauce
½ tsp of diced fresh hot green chili pepper
My husband had bought a very spicy hot chili pepper that makes your eyes water! So, I added it in.
1 pound of ground meat
Brown the meat first and then add the rest of ingredients. It’s so simple, just be careful on the hot spices if you don’t like spicy food. I simmered it for an hour on low. My husband loved it.
Beans are a constant staple in our house. They are high fiber and a great source of protein. I pray you all find bargains at the supermarket this week!
