Picnic in the Desert with Friends
What should we bring?
Crockpot Cowboy Beans!
Everyone at the picnic loved them! This recipe makes a lot. My Crockpot was full. This recipe could easily be cut in half.
Our local Rock and Mineral Club had a sunset picnic and then looked for fluorescent rocks at night!
Here is a display of our Fluorescent Rocks that we have… to show you that some rocks and minerals will fluoresce under long and short wave lighting.
Here is how I made the Cowboy Beans.
I bought thick bacon and chopped it up before frying it and drained the fat then added it to the crockpot.
I sautéed the diced onions in the same pan that I used for the bacon.
I browned the ground beef. When it was done, I drained the fat.
I added everything to the crockpot. Bacon went in first, then ALL the Beans,
then I added the onions…
And in went the Ground Beef.
I added the ketchup and Molasses (no picture) and stirred it all together. It all cooked on low for about 5 hours in the Crockpot. The end result was fabulous!
Thanks for reading and I hope you get to make these Beans. They are delicious and they serve a crowd.
