I've been wanting to can some Chili Hot Beans for a while now since we eat a lot of chili during the winter. I have finally found the time and a decent recipe that works for me. I wanted to use something along the lines of "Ben's Beans" which is using dried beans without soaking them as I don't have a lot of time on my hands these days. So here's what I have came up with and it works out really great.
Chili Hot Beans
Ingredients per pint jar:
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon onion, diced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon jalpenos, diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of crushed red peppers
dash of hot pepper sauce (Louisiana)
1/2 cup small red beans (Pinto Beans), rinsed
In prepared sterilized jars add tomato sauce, vegetables and spices, add rinsed beans. Then add boiling water leaving 1 inch head space.
I give my jars a nice stir to keep the seasonings from clumping up. Clean rims of jars with wet paper towel: affix two piece caps. Process in pressure caner 10 lbs. for (pints) 75 minutes.
If you want to do quarts you will need to double the recipe and process at 10 lbs. pressure for 90 minutes.
