Recipe for a snow day

Well the weather outside is frightful and I have no corn for popping…yikes! When a storm hits most of us sit around wishing the storm away. How about digging through your recipe box for a favorite of yours? It really helps with passing the time.

One of my favorites is making homemade beans and chili. On a cold day, what better way to warm up then with a cup of chili and a handful of oyster crackers? Oh, and a nice fire too!

Here’s my recipe for my homemade beans:

2 cups of Anasazibeans

3 tsp. of beef bouillon

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. basil

1 tsp. cumin

Soak beans overnight in large bowl. Make sure you cover the beans with water completely. The next day, rinse beans, then transfer to a 3-quart pot and add water that more than covers the beans and add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until beans are tender.

Once the beans are done, I use two packets of McCormick’s Chiliseasoning mix to make the chili. The rest, as they say, is in the fixings. It’s a family favorite and with winter upon us, it will be a pot of this family recipe cooking on my stove more than once.

Keep warm and Happy Holidays!
