How To Make spicy anasazi bean chili

  • 1
    Place pre-soaked beans in a 5 quart Dutch oven. Cover beans with water 2" above bean, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1.5 hours. Drain water from beans and replace with 2 cups of fresh water. (I did NOT drain and replace the water. I kept what I had in the oven.)
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 350*.

    Meanwhile, brown chorizo in a skillet and add to the beans. Add remaining ingredients to the beans and mix well. Cover Dutch oven and bake for 2 1/4 hours or until beans are tender.
