Are they canned or fresh? Flavored or unflavored?

I've used plain pinto beans (no pork or anything) and they were fine. I've used both canned and dry. Just as long as they're not seasoned with pork/bacon or whatever, I think you'll be okay.

Good luck!

^^^ This.

I find kidney beans in chili to be a midwest/Northeast curiosity.

I always use about 3 -4 different kinds of beans along with 2 lbs of ground turkey(or beef), plus much more, it's thick! Growing up in the Southwest that's how I was taught, and still love to this day!!
