  1. Place items in layers into mason jar in the following order: beans, beef, onion, seasonings, tomato powder, bell peppers, then corn.  Shake to settle contents.
  2. Lay oxygen absorber on top of ingredients (optional). Wipe off rim of mason jar to allow for a good vacuum seal with the lid.
  3. Place new canning lid on top of jar. Using wide-mouth attachment for a FoodSaver, vacuum seal the lid onto jar following instructions from your FoodSaver manual.  
  4. Once seal is done, remove vacuum attachment and put ring on. Tighten by hand, but don't over tighten.
  5. Label and date. Store in cool, dry location.

To cook:

    Empty contents of jar (minus oxygen packet if present) into large stock pot or dutch oven.  Add 8 cups of water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes until vegetables are tender.
