Crystal Miller

3 cups dry small red beans (sub any type of bean you would like)
10 cups water
1 T. salt
1 lb. hamburger, cooked and drained (less hamburger works great too)
2 to 4 T. chili powder
1 can Rotel tomatoes

Combine beans, water and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 3 hours checking on water levels periodically. When beans are finished add cooked hamburger and chili powder adjusting seasonings according to taste and Rotel tomatoes. Chili freezes beautifully. It is a great meal to have in the freezer. You can easily double or triple this recipe (make sure you have a big enough pot, as beans do expand during cooking). I do not presoak my beans.
