 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      package       Pinto beans
    2      pounds        Chili meat OR
    4      pounds        Lean beef sirloin -- chopped
                         In 1/2 inch cubes
    1      pound         Low-fat turkey sausage
    1      cup           Onions -- chopped
    1      tablespoon    Garlic powder
    1      tablespoon    Red cayenne pepper
    2      cans          Tomato sauce
    3      tablespoons   New Mexico (or other hot)
                         Chili powder
    1      teaspoon      Dried oregano
    2      tablespoons   Ground cumin
    1      tablespoon    Vegetable oil
    1      teaspoon      Louisiana (or Tobasco) Hot
                         Sauce
    1      can           Jalapenos -- chopped
      1/2  tablespoon    Salt
 
 Wash beans in colander and soak overnight. Wash again next day, and place in
large chili pot. Cover with water about 1/2 to 3/4 inch over beans; simmer,
covered, for about 2-1/2 hours or until done. If substituting beans with the lean
beef sirloin, brown the meat 1 pound at a time, preferably in a non-stick skillet
without any oil. Place the meat in large chili pot. You will also need 1 more 12
ounce can of tomato sauce and 1 to 2 10 ounce cans of fat-skimmed beef stock. You
will add the extra can of tomato sauce and the can of beef stock in the next
paragraph of directions. Brown meat and place in large saucepan.
 Add all of the other ingredients and spices. Mix well.
 Simmer, covered, for 1 hour. When beans are done, add contents of saucepan to
chili pot and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. Makes 15 to 20 servings, 225 calories
each (205 with out the oil). Salt and pepper to taste.
