 This recipe is from a mystery book by Nancy Pickard and Virginia Rich. The 
 book is “The 27* Ingredient Chili Con Carne Murders”.
 
 Wash and drain pinto beans and soak in water overnight. Bring to boil, lower
heat, and simmer 2 to 3 hours or until tender. Drain. Meanwhile, melt butter in
large skillet and add onions, chilies, and garlic.
 Saute until onion is soft. Add chopped sirloin and cook over moderate heat
until meat is brown. In a separate pan brown sausage and pour off fat. Add
sausage to meat mixture. Sprinkle with flour and stir to blend, then transfer
to Dutch oven or 8 qt. kettle.
 Add pinto and canned beans and all remaining ingredints except sour cream;
bring just to boil.
 Lower heat and simmer about 30 minutes. Skim off fat with a cold spoon as it
rises to the top. Serve with sour cream. This freezes wonderfully.
