ECONOMY IN COOKING MOCK
CHILE CON CARNE ,
By Biddy Bye
By practicing economy every day
a housewife may be able to keep her
food bills down to last year's level,
but in so doing she will have to teach
her family to like a-different class of
foods.
These may be as nutritious as the
former diet, but not always as palatable.
A mock chile con carne made with
beans is an- excellent substitute for
a meat dish, but one would not pre-,
tend that it is as acceptable as por
terhouse. However, with the pres
ent scale of steak prices it is often
foolish to spend father's hard-earned
money for choice cuts of beef.
Mock Chile Cop Came
Wash 1 pint of kidney, beans and
soak over night. Next morning cov
er with fresh water, bring to a boil,
drain, throw away the water, cover
again with fresh boiling water and
cook untiRhe beans are tender. Half
an hour before the beans are done
put 6 tablespoons 6f olive or peanut
oil in a saucepan, add 4 sweet pep
pers, 1 small red pepper, 1 onion,
finely chopped, and 1 pint of thick,
strained-tomato. Cook 30 minutes;
then stir in the beans,, with 1 tea
spoon of salt, and simmer gently 15
minutes longer. Serve with thin
crisp bacon arranged over the top.
