Lower stove top temperature to medium and add:

  • 4 tbls McCormack’s chili powder
  • 3 tbls apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cans (15.5 ounce) dark red kidney beans (strained and rinsed)
  • 1 can tomato paste (8 ounce)
  • 2 tsps salt

Adjust the spices to taste about 1/2 hour into the simmering (20 minutes before finished). Consider whether you need to add any salt, chili powder, vinegar, hot pepper and/or tomato paste to your liking.
