Black bean is one of my favorite beans. We can make numerous dishes using this. Though it is not a common one in India, one can compare its taste with a mixture of rajma (red kidney beans) and black gram.Chillie or chili is a dish resembling a thick lentil soup. It can be had along with tortilla chips as a dip or bread rolls. Here I have used dried black beans. I always buy a pack of dry beans, soak and pressure cook them, keep them frozen in small portions till I need. Though buying canned beans is easier, I like my method better. Anyways both tastes good. Try this chili on a cold winter day and you are gonna love it!
