    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    A flavorful chili from South American Food and Cooking. Prep time does not include soaking beans. Instructions from the original recipe are for cooking in the oven, but I find cooking it in a pot on the stovetop gives you a better idea of when the beans are cooked, as well as how thick or watery the stew is. This is really nice served with Creamy Rice Casserole.

      I'm really sorry, but the recipe didn't really work for me. I did everything as directed (except from using a green bell pepper instead of a red one, but that couldn't have made much of a difference), but even after 2 1/2 hours in the oven my black beans were still not cooked through. I ended up picking most of them back out, which was quite fiddly and added a can of kidney beans in the end, heating them through before serving it over rice. I also had to thicken the sauce a bit with some cornflower as it was very runny. The flavours were good though, with a nice heat from the chili and the hot sauce. I'd probably also add more garlic next time. Having chunks of steak was a nice change from the usual minced meat. Thanks for sharing.

      I made a few changes to this recipe, I used canned black beans for this, increased the garlic and used 2 large jalapeno peppers and omitted the red chili, I cooked mine for well over the 2 hours, this has a great combo of flavors, thanks pattikay!...Kitten:)
