This is from Creative Canning.  I usually can it this in pints, rather than quarts. We rarely eat chili for a main meal, but sometimes open a pint to spoon over a hamburger or hot dog on a summer afernoon. If you use pints, make sure to use HALF of this recipe in each jar!

Chili with Beans

Soak about three pounds of pinto beans overnight. You can also use a mix of red, pinto and black beans. 

In each quart jar add:

1/4 cup tomato paste
2 T chopped onion (I only use a pinch)
1t. chili powder
scant t. salt
1 t. cumin
pinch of pepper
1/4 t. garlic powder
pinch oregano

1/4 cup cooked ground beef
2 1/2 cups soaked beans

Fill to about an inch from the top of the jar with hot water. Process quarts for 95 minutes, pints 75 minutes at 10 pound pressure and adjusted to your altitude.
