  • High Protein Beans

    A friend of mine from work gave me a line card for Tepary Beans (he's a health nut, but doesn't lift).

    Here is the Nutritional Info (I can't figure out how to attach the card).
    Thinking about trying it out for my chili recipe. What do you guys think?

    Beans are always a solid choice. But these you speak of are not magic. 1/2 cup of just about any dry bean will have similar nutritional content. Here is the breakdown of plain old kidney beans for example:

        Best thing ever; throw a couple of bags of dry beans (I prefer red or black) in the crock pot with onions (minced) garlic, & seasoning. Cook for ~12 hours...boom, a week's worth of carbs.

        I used to do this damn near every Sunday and ate Skip's chili every day of the week.
        You're perfect, yes it's true. But without me...you're only you.

          NOTE: 1/2 of DRY beans is a hellova lot more quantity than 1/2 COOKED beans. Once you cook them they swell up to 2 or 3 times the size of a dry bean. Thats why the numbers are so high.

            Truth. 1/2c dry ends up being 1c cooked for me.

              "Magic Beans", LOL!

              I was just impressed of the zero fat. And the Chilli recipe I was speaking of was Skip's. That shit is delicious! I could eat it for at least one meal every day and not get tired of it.
