I put together a new dish, new to me , not necessarily new new to the cooking world; last night and wanted to share it as it is really slamming good!

You will need: (Please note that this is for a VERY large portion that has fed 2 people the last two nights with plenty to leave at home, plus take some out on the road in my fridge, you can and probably should adjust the recipe to your individual need(s) if you want to try it out)

1/2 pound of bacon -preferrably Applewood Smoked -though I suppose hickory could work in a pinch 2 pounds of Ground Beef (Turkey is good too, in fact I did a one to one Turkey and beef since I made this for me and mom) 1 chopped white onion 1 chopped green bell pepper 1 chopped red bell pepper 1 Large can ( I used 55 oz of bush's original) 1 15 oz cans black beans - drained 1 15 oz can of kidney beans- drained 1/2 cup of brown sugar (less if desired or omit) 1/4 cup worchester sauce add your favorite bbq sauce to taste garlic powder (to taste)

How to bring it all together:

Take a large frying pan, peferrable one with a deeper dish/thicker walls - I used a ceramic lined pan as mom doesnt keep cast iron.

1) Chop the bacon into bite sized pieces and fry it up in the pan, do not drain the grease.

2 Add the ground beef and turkey and stir the meats really well

3) Once the meat has been cooking about 2 minutes - toss in the onion and peppers, cook the mixture until vegetables are cooked

While all of that is going, open up your cans of beans and drain the kidney and black beans.

Once the meat and vegetables are cooked to desired consistency, add the beans and stir them up.

4) add the brown sugar, worchester and bbq sauce and stir

5) add in your garlic powder and stir, you can also add black pepper if you like (I did)

Stir it on the stove for a bout 2 to 4 minutes - then toss the pan in the preheated oven and cook for 30 to 40 minutes to get the mixture nice and thick.

Goes good slapped on a low carb tortilla or just as a meal, prep time is a bit long but its a tasty meal! :P You can also add tobasco or whatever you want after serving it. Versatile and tasty!

Moe,

Did you freeze any of it? That really looks good. I'll have to make some of that when I get home in a couple weeks so I can take it out on the road with me.

I’ll swing by later and clean up the ingredients list, I don’t know why it jumbled it all together like that when I spaced things out line by line, unless I did something wrong I am not aware of,

Wow, that does look good.

For those of us who cook in the truck, I think your recipe could be done in a crock pot. Also, for truck cooking, you can buy at Walmart and probably other stores, jars of chopped onions and bacon bits. I carry those ingredients and it makes crock pot recipes easier for the truck.

LOL!

I have a pot that will make double the amount of spaghetti that I make now. Are you sure you want that much?
