I have been a fan of buying bags of 18 bean soup mix (when I first starting prepping) or making my own version of 18 bean soup mix.  But even in a survival situation, 18 bean soup mix can get pretty boring.  But turning 18 bean soup mix into vegetarian chili is a fresh way to turn this soup mix into something other than soup.  I have made this...

Mexican Chili Mix

Posted by on June 29, 2011
This is a mix you can make up and keep in your food cache, I do like the idea of not only having stores of beans but also having beans mixed ready-to-go that can be used with just water, while still having flavor.  It is chili but with a bit more of a kick, and you can make it vegetarian or with ground beef if available.  You can even add canned...
