How to Can Chili by the jar

In each jar                (or large batch)     Total
1/2 cup                       3 ½ cups    dry pinto beans rinsed.
1 1/2 cups                  4 lbs        ground beef
1/4 cup                      1 large        onion chopped
1 tsp                            7 tsp        salt
Dash                           2 tsp        black pepper
2 Tbs                          14 Tbs        chili powder
1/4 tsp                       1 ¾ tsp        cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp                       1 ¾ tsp        cumin
1/2 cup                       2 pints        chopped tomatoes
2 Tbs                         (2) 8 oz cans    tomato sauce
As needed                Water

First brown the ground beef and then rinse under very hot water to get rid of all the grease you can.  There are 2 ways to do this.  Put the amount specified into each bottle individually then fill with water  leaving 1″ headspace. Or mix all ingredients (total amounts)
except the beans in a pan and then divide up into the bottles and then add ¼ cup dry beans to each bottle and water.

Instead of all the spices you can use your favorite chili spice.

For quarts process in pressure canner for 90 minutes at 10 lbs pressure (adjust for your altitude).
This makes 7 quarts.

It comes out a bit thick and a little too spicy for my taste but when I heat it up I add a little water and it is just right.
