Jason
5:48:06 PM

Kara
5:48:06 PM
hahaha
5:48:35 PM
put those all in your skillet with little bit oil. when onions go clear, add two cans beans, drained

Jason
5:48:42 PM
:-)

Kara
5:48:46 PM
and a couple of cups of stock

Jason
5:48:48 PM
yup

Kara
5:49:11 PM
are jalapenos a thing there?

Jason
5:49:31 PM
Oh yes! But I've only got them in a jar with vinegar.

Kara
5:49:40 PM
that's ok. take out a couple of those
5:49:52 PM
put them in bowl with the other 2 cans beans, with beanwater in

Jason
5:50:00 PM
Oh good.

Kara
5:50:06 PM
and some cumin and a little salt

Jason
5:50:10 PM

Kara
5:50:10 PM

Jason
5:50:14 PM

Kara
5:50:18 PM

Jason
5:50:20 PM
ok

Kara
5:50:27 PM
stir that up, and put it in blender
5:50:30 PM
make very smooth

Jason
5:50:41 PM
Oh, really? Don't normally do smooth. Can make an exception if you're sure.
5:50:52 PM
Or is this ...

Kara
5:50:59 PM
medium smooth also ok, but you'll get good texture from the beans in skillet

Jason
5:51:01 PM
… just the beans + jalapenos + seasoning?

Kara
5:51:04 PM
yes

Jason
5:51:05 PM
Aha. Got you.

Kara
5:51:08 PM
stuff in skillet remains

Jason
5:51:09 PM
Thanks.

Kara
5:51:16 PM
sorry. should have said better

Jason
5:51:20 PM
nono

Kara
5:52:02 PM
after amooth, stir it into skillet mix, before or after adding mix to big soup pot (i have less diasters with after, but it tastes slightly better with before)

Jason
5:52:17 PM
You have … you've made this before?

Kara
5:52:24 PM
add one beer, some maize, and some cans of tomatos
5:52:28 PM
yes. lots

Jason
5:52:32 PM
:-)

Kara
5:52:44 PM
i'm not very good at writng down recipes, alas :(

Jason
5:52:56 PM
Only have canned maize, which I believe is an absolute abomination. OK to leave maize out altogether?

Kara
5:53:13 PM
is ok. less mexican without maize, but you are correct re: abomination
5:53:22 PM
maybe add less beer, in that case
5:53:26 PM
drink half

Jason
5:53:33 PM
I actually don't know how it got into the kitchen. It's practially a canned Denial Of Service attack.

Kara
5:53:39 PM
AHAHAHAHAHAHA
5:53:57 PM
i put a lot of cayenne in mine, as well
5:54:02 PM
and much chili podwer, for josh
5:54:09 PM
but i'm not sure those are things there, either

Jason
5:54:18 PM
Yes they are, or I wouldn't be here.

Kara
5:54:24 PM
and if snow is any indication, cayenne should be used carefully on australians :$
5:54:39 PM
tries not to kill any more houseguests

Jason
5:54:40 PM
True, compared to you guys, but it's an essential ingredient anyway.

Kara
