This is a type of chili. I had it last 4th of July at a neighborhood event and finally received the recipe.


  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tsp. vinegar
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 can pork n beans
  • 1 cup onions, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 (6 oz.) can water (use the paste can for measuring)
  • 2 tsp. mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder


The lady that brought the cowboy beans sent me the ingredients with no instructions. I am assuming you mix it all in a slow cooker (recommend a low heat setting) and cook it till the kidney beans are soft.

These beans were delicious. I'm not a big bean eater, but I went to get seconds and the pot was empty. The beans were especially good with the dipping style corn chips.

We used to have these when we camped in the summer time. This recipe tells how to bake them in the oven, but we used to heat them over an open fire. Just mix and heat through. Yummy with hot dogs or burgers from the grill.


  • 1/2 lb. hamburger
  • 1/2 lb. bacon, browned and drained
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 (regular size) can pork and beans
  • 1 (regular size) can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 (regular size) can lima beans, drained
  • 1 (regular size) can butter beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. vinegar


Mix first 7 ingredients together and then add the rest of the ingredients. Put in bean pot and bake in 350 degree F oven for 40 minutes.

A kid favorite! In 3 qt. saucepan, cook pasta sauce, beans and hot dogs over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until heated through.

Hearty just the way the men like them. Mix all together and bake 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees F. You may omit the chillies and hamburger for a great three bean bake, also.
