  1. Pick over and rinse the dried beans, and place them in a large saucepan of water with a lid. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, turn off the heat, and let the beans sit for 1 hour. Drain and rinse the beans in a colander, return to the saucepan, cover with water, and simmer for 2 hours, until the beans are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, place the sausage, beef, onion, and green pepper in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir for about 10 minutes, until the3 sausage and beef are evenly brown.
  3. Stir the meat mixture into the beans, and mix in the tomatoes with chiles, ketchup, and chili powder. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for about 20 minutes to thicken.

This dish was really very good. I did make some changes though. Didn't have diced tomatoes w/chile's, so used regular diced tomatoes. I used hot italian sausage so there was still a nice bite...

Very simple and tasty! As is said, it's easy to make your own variations. I'll be using this to make and freeze for when my baby comes!

I appreciate this recipe for the great no-soak cooking technique for the beans that it offers.

This was pretty good stuff - a lot like a chili, but not quite. It makes a *lot* - it lasted me for five days. I made it exactly as written, using all the 85% beef I had, and a little 93% beef. ...
