    Amy in Kansas's Note:

    This is a recipe I came up with as a substitute for canned chili beans. This is not spicy really but this is usually what you will find the beans called in the grocery aisle. I don't care for kidney beans so I use pintos, but I am sure they would work also. Cooked beans freeze well so it makes sense to cook the whole package and be done.
