This recipe has potential. I think it would have been a lot better if the onion had been sauteed first.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pick and debris from beans then rinse and drain them.
  2. In a 6 quart pot combine beans, onion, garlic, chili, coconut milk, and broth.
  3. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, until beans are almost completely soft when pressed, 75-90 minutes.
  4. Stir in rice, cover and cook over low heat until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes. (add a little extra broth or water if needed to prevent sticking.).
  5. Discard chili. Add salt to taste.
