crock pot chili beans quickie, Member sharonguacheta

i just finished eatting the chili bean recipe you submitted with just a little adjustment on time and a variation in ingredients. I would have to say that this is one of the best hits for a delicous meal that we have had in awhile. I followed the same recipe that you had but instead of dry beans i added a 27 oz. can of lucks pinto beans and also a 12 oz can of tomato paste instead of a 6 oz. can. This way they cooked well in 2-3 hours instead of 7-9 hours. i also made some rice with a little adobo seasoning and used that as a side. WONDERFUL!!!
