I can my beans dry to make chili beans, then just mash them after they are canned.
For chili beans, I just put 2/3 cups of rinsed dried beans (small red or pinto) in the jar with the seasonings I want to use... garlic, cumin, chili powder, maybe a dried pepper, a bit of salt, some oregano, perhaps a teaspoon of dried tomato powder (I do it different every time), then fill the jar with water to leave 1 inch of head space. I pressure can beans for 75 minutes on 10 pounds of pressure after a 10 minute vent.
I am thankful.
