Number of Servings: 8


    1/2 c. dried baby lima beans
    1/2 c. dried nave beans
    1/2 c. dried great northern beans
    1 medium onion, chipped
    2 cloves garlic, minced

    2 t. dried oregano
    1 1/2 t. ground cumin
    1/4 t. ground cloves
    1/4 t. cayenne pepper
    2 quarts water plus water for soaking


rinse and sort the beans then place them in a 2 qt or larger pan. Cover with water to almost the top of the pan and let soak overnight.

Dump the rehydrated beans and the water into a colindar and rinse. Put the beans back into the pan. Add onion, garlic, chiles, dired oregano, ground cumin, ground cloves, cayenne pepper and 2 quarts fresh water (do not use water leftover from soaking). Sitr, bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer uncovered until most of the water has cooked out, about 2 hours.

Makes 8 1/2-cup servings

Optional: If you like more soupy chili simmer with the lid on the pan but the serving size will be different.

    I used different beans and I found this very flavorful without the added salt. - 8/2/09

  • I loved this. It is very versatile and you can make it to suit your own taste. I added a little ground chipotle instead of cayenne. Lots of uses for this too: with eggs, burritos, salad, etc. - 1/4/11
