The original Tex-Mex recipe is prepared with paprika to give it the red color and flavor. Some people add some kind of sauce to it but I like to prepare it with guajillo chili. The guajillo chiles take the chili beans to another level.

HOW DO I COOK BEANS FOR CHILI

 Beans are cooked separately. It is very easy to prepare beans in a pot or as we call them in Mexico, frijoles de la olla. In a saucepan, place 4 cups of beans with double the water of their volume and soak for at least half an hour. This will help you cook much faster and use less gas. Then rinse the water from the beans. Put the beans back in the pot along with 12 cups of water, 2 garlic cloves, 1/4 of an onion and 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat and when they boil cover and set the heat low for about 1 hour.

The truth is that I always cook the beans in the Instant Pot and they are ready in less time. Take advantage if you have a pressure cooker or instant Pot prepare them there.
