BackstoryI invented this dish after my two young sons saw the movie "Blazing Saddles." Their favorite scene (of course) was of the cowboys sitting around a campfire, eating beans.
This is a one-pot throw-together recipe. Just put in pretty much anything you want. Very little measurement required.
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 2 pkgs Li'l Smokies
- 1 medium onion, roughly chopped
- two regular cans pork and beans
- your favorite bbq sauce.
- Those are the basic ingredients. You can add anything you like. On my latest version, I added.
- bacon sliced into 1-inch pieces
- 2 small cans chopped green chiles
- sliced jalapenos
- Frank's original hot sauce.
- Brown beef and drain.
- Add all other ingredients. Cover and simmer until onions are tender and flavors are blended.
- Feel free to experiment
