Mrs. Coller's Chili
(makes about 10 servings...you can half this or freeze the remaining if you don't need this much)
6 cans beans (We like to use black beans)
2 cans refried beans
1-2 pkg. taco seasoning
1/2 c. bbq sauce
1/4 c. dijon or spicy mustard
Rinse 6 cans beans in strainer. Place them in a pot with the refried beans and all other ingredients. Add 2-4 c. water. You want to start out with the chili quite a bit runnier than you like it. Cook and stir often until it has reached your desired thickness. This could be anywhere from a half hour to an hour and a half...depending on how much water you add. The more water you add, the longer you have to cook it and the more flavorful it will be as the beans absorb the flavors from the other ingredients. If you're in a hurry, just add a couple cups of water so there's a buffer there to keep it from sticking to the pan while it's heating up and dissolving the seasoning and you'll be good to go in about a half hour.

Another blog that I'm really enjoying lately is 31 Cups. Gretchen has such awesome insights and I always come away from her blog feeling fed. She linked up a great post about diving into enjoying poetry---I'm ready!
