Part 1
4 C. Kidney beans,
Cook until tender drain and add the following.

Part 2
2 lbs. ground beef, browned with the following vegetables.
1/2 C. celery chopped
1/2 C. onion chopped
1/4 C. green pepper chopped.

Part 3
1 - 16 oz. can tomato sauce
1 qt. can crushed or chopped tomatoes
1 1/2 C. catsup
1/4 C. lemon juice
1/4 C. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 T. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
2 T. Worcestershire sauce

Part 1: In a large pot (I use an 8 qt size or larger) soak beans over night in as much water as your pot will hold. The more the better but remember the beans will expand. Or use the quick soak method still using plenty of water. Drain and refill pot with a lot of water. Cook until tender drain. Cook hamburger & vegetable until tender then add to the pot with the beans. Add remaining ingredients and then simmer until all the flavors are blended, about and hour or two.
