Bacon Wrapped Smokies
This was really good, but I don't know if it was "worth the trouble" good. Two things I did to cut back on the grease factor that I don't think anyone has mentioned. One, with little smokies I've ALWAYS boiled those before putting in any type of sauce, and boiled them for this recipe as well - you'd be amazed how much grease boils out. Two, on the bacon, I partially cooked it in the microwave (between sheets of paper towels) to speed the cooking process and cut back on some of the grease. As others recommended, I tossed the smokies in a ziplock bag with the brown sugar, and also dredged the bacon in the brown sugar. All the guys loved it!

Taco Soup III
I have a recipe that is very similar to this one...the great thing is, you can add just about any kind or amount of beans to it, and it's still great! If you are "stretching" this for a larger crowd, I add mexican corn, black beans and ranch beans to this, and for an extra kick, Hidden Valley has a Mexican Ranch Dip mix as opposed to the original mix. Great recipe!
