It’s Bean Time!

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.

Until Next Time~ Nancy
