Ingredients

3 bacon slices, chopped
1 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon dark molasses
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 (15-ounce) cans cannellini beans or other white beans, drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic and onions, undrained


This is an old standby recipe that I have used for years. Perfect when I want something warm, hearty, and filling, without killing my diet.


I made this last night with turkey bacon as I had that handy, adding some olive oil to compensate for the lack of bacon drippings. I usually add an additional cup or water than what is called for in the recipe, as it is more of a stew without it. I suggest serving with a cheese/herb biscuit or cornbread, along with a salad.
