Created and submitted for the "Beans Around the World" contest, under the "It's BEAN in the Family for Generations" sub-category, this chili recipe is one of my go-to staples. It's a slightly-adapted version of a recipe from my grandma and is wonderfully simple. If you try it out just be sure to add generous spices (cumin, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, and oregano) if you aren't using a taco seasoning spice blend (and maybe add some extra even if you are).
An ancient Japanese beauty ritual is to use roasted ground adzuki beans to exfoliate and polish the face. Just beans and water is all you need! This entry is enspired by the Beans Around the World Contest with tdac and the US Dried Bean Council. It’s a recipe, but not one for eating;)
Happy tummy, healthy body!
No matter how old are you, beans always been so good. Also, there are so many choices of beantastic must try dishes in the world. Let's eat 3 cups of tasty beans every week for our happy healthy life. Enjoy!

Since I can remember, my family has enjoyed black eyed peas and other savory side dishes on New Year's Day to symbolize the good luck and fortune we want to invite into our new year. This illustration depicts our recipe (with a few modern updates) and shows a family enjoying the tradition. As I was finalizing this illustration I found some old stationery my late mother had written some recipes on. It was such a treat to be able to include it in this drawing about family traditions.
Beans are so healthy and yet so underrated. They are high in fiber and score low on the glycemic index, which regulates the blood sugar. Beans are also a great source of protein and minerals such as iron, magnesium and zinc. It’s recommended to eat 3 cups of beans per week.
