4 Bean Chili

2 cups dry black beans
2 cups dry kidney beans
2 cups dry cranberry beans
1 can ranch style beans
1 pound ground beef
1 pound pork stew meat
2 small or 1 large green bell pepper, diced
3 jalapenos, diced
1 28oz can diced tomatoes
1 onion, diced
8 tablespoons chili seasoning mix
1 small can salsa verde
salt and pepper and red chile flakes to taste

Make It:
Soak all dry beans in enough water to cover, overnight. Heat a large pot over medium heat, add beef to the pot, cook breaking up with a spoon until browned. Add onion, bell pepper, and jalapenos to meat, cook and stir till softened. Drain off extra fat if needed. Add beans, pork, tomatoes, salsa verde and seasoning, stir together( if mixture seems to thick add a little water, beer, or beef broth).Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Cover and cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Uncover taste and add salt, pepper and red chile flakes if needed. Allow to cook for another hour uncovered. Taste and add more seasoning if needed. Enjoy!
