Chili with Dry Pinto Beans

Go to comments page on Chili with Dry Pinto Beans

The pinto beans cook with the chili.



Cook and stir beef in a Dutch oven until beef is gray. Drain fat.
Stir in chili powder, oregano, and cumin. Heat until fragrant.
Stir in onion, garlic and occasionally stir for 5 minutes.
Add pinto beans, tomatoes, salt, red pepper flakes, and enough water to cover by at least at least 1 inch.
Bring to light boil then to very low and cook about 4 hours. Cover tightly. Add water, if necessary, as the beans will absorb water.
