  • 1 pack Patagonia Provisions Red Bean Chili or Patagonia Provisions Spicy Red Bean Chili
  • 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tsp. of your favorite hot sauce (or ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper and 2 tsp. vinegar)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 - 8 oz. block extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated or chopped into small pieces
  • Sour cream, chopped green onion, avocado, cilantro and crumbled cotija cheese for garnish (optional)

Putting It All Together

  1. Prepare Red Bean Chili as directed on the pack, and reserve.
  2. In a medium pot, combine evaporated milk, cornstarch, garlic and hot sauce and whisk together thoroughly.
