Barbecue Bean Chili

Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 servings
Calories: 386kcal


  • 1 pound dried small red beans
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 yellow onions , peeled and diced
  • 6 garlic cloves , peeled and chopped
  • 4 ripe tomatoes , chopped
  • 1 cup frozen white corn
  • 1 cup prepared gluten-free barbecue sauce
  • ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup chicken broth


  • Add the beans to a pot with water to cover and cook for 10 minutes at a rapid boil.
  • Let the beans sit in the hot water for 1 hour before draining and placing into the insert of a 6-quart slow cooker. (Red beans must be boiled before putting into the slow cooker to remove a naturally occurring potential toxin.)
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the beef, onions and garlic, stirring, until the meat has browned.
  • Drain off any accumulated fat.
  • Transfer to the insert.
  • Add the tomatoes, corn, barbecue sauce, cilantro, chili powder and cumin.
  • Stir in the broth.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for about 5 hours. The chili is finished when the beans have reached desired tenderness and have begun to split. If you live at high elevation, add an additional 3 hours to the cooking time.
