>started making chili and have no idea what I'm doing

Help me robots I already regret trying this
I just bought the ingredients and boiled the beans for two minutes and now in ten minutes shy of an hour I need to clean them and boil them again
I bought black beans when the recipe said to use red
And I don't have one of those things to take away the water
No, the two minutes aren't for cooking them its supposed to replace the leaving them on water the whole night
I really need this to go right since I don't have any money or food left
Jesus. Yeah you can quick boil raw beans by boiling the water for a bit and then turning off the heat but covering it tight for an hour or two.
After that drain the water and you can cook it in the chili. Christ, at least tell me you can boil spaghetti? Had a guy friend in college who couldn't even boil noodles.
Ok here is my progress so far
boiled them for 2 minutes let them rest an hour and cleaned them
Now I removed half of them and I'm going to boil them again
DONT ADD SALT TO THE WATER LIKE YOU WOULD WITH PASTA OR THE BEANS WILL GO ALL HARD AND SHIT
man didn't i tell you last night that chili is terrible?
no that's not how it works at all you're suppose to do that like bring it up to a boil, let it sit for an hour, and redo that once or twice. This is weird because I think my mom just try this out and it turned out really kind of chewy sort of off consistency I was just sort of grateful that I didn't have to go find food for myself that I told her it was okay, it's not okay though friend that method sucks for cooking edible food.
dude salting is just to add flavor it doesn't help water boil or anything like if you got a spegetti strainer i would strain out the beans/rinse them off then just throw them in water over night.
The beans turned out all right tho I'm debating adding a second can of tomatoes since it seems like its not enoguh
