Mom's Black Bean Chili
This one's an easy-for-a-crowd classic from my childhood that mom would make regularly. It takes an hour to cook, but it comes together rather simply and is pretty tasty. Usually served over dumpling-sized egg noodles.

'Makes ~3 meals' worth of leftovers, especially if you end up with a 1.25lb package of sausage like I did.

Black Bean Chili

1 lb sweet Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
2 cans of black beans (slightly drained)
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
8 oz beef broth (made from a bouillion cube, or from can)
1/2 to 3/4 cup carrots - diced
1 onion - diced
2 large bay leaves
  1. Brown the sausage, and drain the fat.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients in.
  3. Turn heat down and simmer for 45 minutes
  4. Hand smash the chili in the pan - getting the black beans to thicken the sauce.
  5. Cook for another 15 - 20 minutes, remove the bay leaves and serve.
