Cowboy Beans

I have made this dish since Sean and I were first married. It is a family pleaser for sure! The weather on Beaty's Creek has been down right COLD! We've had record breaking cold temps of -15 and try 16+ inches of snow in 2 days! The need for hot comfort foods are a must! This recipe is not too sweet but just sweet enough, but you can make it as sweet as you like. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


2 cans canned corn
2 cans tomato sauce
6 cups pinto beans-cooked
3 pound ground beef
1 large onion-chopped
1 t cumin
2 t salt
8 T chili powder
1 cup brown sugar

Brown ground beef with onion. When cooked drain any fat and then add in chili powder, cumin, and salt. Stir until combined. Now add in your tomato sauce, beans, corn, and brown sugar. Stir well and let simmer over medium heat for 2 hours. Stir every 30 minutes. Serve with cornbread and shredded cheese.
*I always make Cowboy Beans the day after we have beans for dinner, good way to use up your leftovers.
