Lately I've been loving Appetite for Reduction Mango BBQ Beans. I also like to turn kidney beans into beanballs or throw them into a marinara for a simple pasta dish.

Chili of course, but you already knew that... To be honest, though, I'm a total slacker and most times I eat kidney beans in this form:

It's great in a tortilla with the usual suspects or with potato wedges/chips and a salad.

+1 on chili. That's just about the only thing I use kidney beans for.

Make a loaf! Or chilli, it is raining over here on the west coast so that is my favourite idea right now.

Always chili. Or a chili potpie, with a polenta crust

Not my favorite bean, so I don't really pursue using it more than for chili and just plain on salads.

Chili potpie is a favorite in my house. I usually just use the v'con corn bread recipe for the crust.
There are also some delicious Indian recipes that use kidney beens. And they are good in a 3 been salad.

I look to cook them in a skillet with onions and seasoning then mash them. It's pretty much just refried beans but with kidney beans.

I love refried beans so I don't care what kind they are.

I'm a n00b with dried beans, but for the sake of being more cost-efficient/pennywise, I am giving it a try. I've kept my kidney beans soaking for a day and a half, but realized they could have been done sooner. Now, they've been cooking for nearly 3 1/2 hours, and there's still an unpleasant aftertaste like chemicals. I know about the poisonous compound in kidney beans, but how long am I supposed to cook them before they no longer taste like that/are safe to eat? They were a little stiffer than completely buttery before, but now I'd bet they're practically at the right texture. I'm just using the stovetop method.

This was going to be my suggestion! This is my go-to for red beans. But I do also throw them into chili. And I did make a soup recipe out of Vegan Mediterranean Kitchen once that called for kidney beans.

Spicy red bean pate :) Drain and rinse, add some water, olive oil, lemon juice and spices then blend or mash together.

That's mainly what I use them for, chili or salad. I just ate some on a bed of lettuce with quinoa, avocado, red onion and carrot. I like them when I cook them properly, I usually mess them up though, or else I buy canned.
