“The chili-with-beans for people who don’t like beans in their chili.” This red chili is a bit of a departure in that I use beans in it. Beans can complement a chili nicely but should be chosen carefully. Flavor and texture should not be overwhelming and should go well with the chilis and meat. This chili was made with red or pink beans: a form of thin-skinned, small kidney bean similar in appearance to a pinto. These were chosen because, when they cook for a long time, they not only add a nice flavor to the chili but they take on the flavor of the chili itself in a smooth, almost butter-like consistency. This allows the flavor of the chili to be spread smoothly around the mouth while eating. In terms of heat, I rate this chili at 3-½ out of 5. I like things hot so this is just a hair above “medium” by my way of thinking. I also won 2nd place in the 2012 company chili cook-off with this one: whoot! “You’ve got red in you.”
