Product Description

The Taneum Canyon Chili embodies northwest flavors. Packed full of garlic, onion and chili powder it tastes great on potatoes. We like to throw a bunch of bakers in the oven then put a couple packages on the stove and invite the whole family over. It’s a great meal and like pizza tastes even better the next day.

Bean Hints & Nutrition:
Beans should always be sorted, cleaned and washed to remove any small rocks, etc.
The USDA recommends that adults eat three cups of beans per week for the maximum health benefit. Beans are naturally low in total fat, contain no saturated at or cholesterol and are an excellent source of protein, calcium, iron, folic acid, and potassium.
Why Beans May Cause Discomfort:
Beans are high in fiber and complex sugars that our bodies have to work hard to digest which may cause intestinal gas.
To reduce cooking time and intestinal gas soak the beans six to 12 hours ahead of cooking to help dissolve the complex sugars. Drain and replace the soaking water as frequently as possible. Over time increase the amount of beans you eat to help your body adapt.

Tidbits of History
The Native American Indians must have foreseen a future in the beautiful forested Taneum Canyon. They had settlements along the Taneum Creek for hundreds of years. They enjoyed the abundant water, wild game, and protection of the canyon. Settlers came to the region in the mid to late 1800’s and began homesteading. They established farms, orchards, a schoolhouse, a coal mine, and a sawmill at Skull Springs.

Timber was the major resource here. Logging began in the early 1900’s using horses. In 1930 a railroad was built up the Taneum to Case Knife Creek. The ties for the railroad were cut at the Taneum Sawmill. This line was used, for the logging industry, until 1939. In 1936 The Conservation Corps established a camp at what is now the Taneum ranger station. This was during the depression and this helped to employ those in need of work. They planted trees, fought fires, and cleaned and maintained trails.

Today the canyon is home to many families and is used for camping, hiking, and other recreation purposes. The Taneum Canyon frames the sky to the west of the Rill Specialty Foods Factory and is one of our employee’s favorite places to camp and hike.
