How to Make Chili Bean Soup


  • 1Rinse, sort and soak beans overnight. Drain and empty them into a large pot; add boiling water, garlic and onion salts, thyme, marjoram. Cover and simmer until beans are tender, about 3 hours. Don't let beans boil dry; add hot water as needed.
  • 2Spoon out 3 cups of cooked beans to use another day in another way. Mash remaining beans with their liquid. Add remaining ingredients.
  • 3Heat 10 minutes to blend flavors. Those spooned out beans make great marinated bean salad additions or can be mashed and fried to use as burrito filling.
    Serves 5 to 6
