Day 353: Black Bean Chili

1 cup dry black beans

4 cups water
1 lb cooked lean ground beef
1/4 cup dried onion
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp garlic salt
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Rinse the black beans and place in the slow cooker. Add 4 cups water. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 1/2-3 1/2 hours (until beans are soft). Drain the liquid. Add beef, onion, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, lime juice, garlic salt, chili powder, cumin, and cinnamon. Cover and cook on HIGH for another 2-3 hours. Serve with sour cream and corn chips, if desired. Makes 4-6 servings.

The hint of lime and cinnamon were a very interesting combination. When I first tried it, I wasn't sure I liked it together or not. However, the next day I had leftovers for lunch and decided that it was pretty good. 3 stars
