May it be the bowl of chili topped with sour cream and bread sprinkled cheddar on top. Over your favorite pasta or to make Nachos with it just could not get any better. Over the years I have made many versions of this dish, with different beans, some with white beans, garbanzo beans or red kidney beans and different meat and veggie combinations. It comes out so much nuttier and flavorful with red kidney beans. I guess you could say I have my favorite. Red kidney beans are so full flavored, and it look gorgeous whenever you cook with it. However, beans are that special ingredient that I like to take my time preparing. Also, it is not an everyday cooking ingredient for me. I know …
