Crystalís Chili Bean Soup
Heat 2 T. oil in large soup pot.
Chop up and add:
1/2 a green pepper, optional
Cook until the onion is soft.
3 cups small red beans
12 cups water
1 Tablespoon salt
Bring to boil, cover and simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Stir occasionally. After beans are soft add:

Hamburger that has been cooked and drained can be added to this, but is optional and we usually donít bother.
