Cooking your Chili Beans
It is important that you cook your chili beans before adding them to most chili recipes.
Rinse 1 pound of dried beans and soak them overnight in 3 quarts (12 cups) of water. Remove any beans that float, and drain beans and replace water with 3 quarts of clean, cold, fresh water.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 2 to 3 hours until beans are easily pierced with a fork. Drain beans and add salt to taste.  You can now use these cooked beans as a protein source on a salad or use them to prepare chili!
