Recipe by Cat Jenkins
"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."

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.
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.
This tasted great and looked nice! I will definitely make it again.
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.
My husband still loves this recipe, though I definitely kick it up a notch with a touch of some red and white pepper, a little mustard powder and touch of molasses. I like this meal since I watch closely what I eat now (diabetes) and let the hubby eat the biscuits. The beans fill me up without triggering my sugar. That touch of molasses doesn't even register for me. I do substitute a nice smoked turkey bacon and use lean ground beef - organic beans, to keep it healthier. Most recipes can still be good, even when done healthier, and I think this is a classic.
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!
Pretty good...I doubled the recipe and its makes a ton so beware.
This is one of my husband's favorites!
