Bacon and ground beef, with chili spices and sweet baked beans gives this dish something the old time cowboys would have appreciated. We eat them with fresh hot sourdough biscuits for a meal that really satisfies.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, fry bacon pieces until browned. Crumble the ground beef into the skillet with the bacon, and stir in the green pepper and onion. Continue to cook until the beef is no longer pink. Drain off any excess grease. Stir in the chili seasoning mix until the meat is coated.

  • Add the tomatoes and beans to the skillet, mix well, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. (I always put my biscuits in just then, and they finish together.)

These are wonderful! Reminded me of a recipe my grandmother used to serve before the football games. I made no changes however suspect grandma added extra brown sugar and ketchup. I thought this recipe was simply perfect as is. Read More

great dish. Today I made this dish the second time and it didn't taste as great as the first time. Maybe it's the chili seasoning but one thing I always remember is that it's spicy for kids. Read More

I just made this tonight and it was great! I followed the recipe exactly. I did steam some green beans as I felt the dinner needed more veggies and my husband ended up mixing them in with this. I tried it and it was great! Next time it will just be a one-pan meal! Read More

I'm not into sweets so it didn't appeal to me personally but I had a few bites and it wasn't bad. Reminded me alot of sloppy joes. Hubby loved it and said he'd give it a six and he hasn't given a five to anything on this website so far. If you like baked beans and/or sweet meats I think this will be a definate do over for you. I have to say the chili gave it some kick for me and the meat/beans for my old cowboy. I don't see it but hubby says next time to try and make some hash browns to pour it over. I'll give an update in a few weeks. It will go into the rotation per his request. Read More

I was not a big fan of this recipe. I thought that it was too spicy and would have been better with more substance. My boyfriend really liked it though so I could just be picky. Read More

Great basic recipe that can be tweaked to personal taste. I browned some diced yellow onion with the ground beef. Also I thought it was missing something so I added some spicy yellow mustard and a little barbecue sauce. Husband had to fend for himself for a couple of days and he had it over steamed white rice one day and in hoagie rolls sloppy Joe-style the next. Thanks Cat! Read More
