    it’s such a complete “brain save” for me. I literally do nothing. The texture ends up being a tad different, but not enough that my family has ever noticed. The kids love having it cooked in baggies too because I will keep some in the fridge and it makes them much more apt to cook up something on their own.

    I was just wondering what to make for dinner tomorrow night…problem solved….the clincher was the cut up carrots….I had just cleaned out my pantry and found a can of pinto beans and one of white beans..so was a no–brainer…but I like the idea of the carrots…also the olives…never have used it in chili before, so will be a new experience…
