Tasty Tuesday: Ranch Beans

First, let me clarify. These beans are not ranch flavored. The "ranch" actually refers to a cattle ranch. And cowboys, but Ranch Beans had a better ring to it than Cowboy Beans.

These hearty beans cook up in the crock pot to give you a warm meal after a full day in the wonderful fall weather.

How To:

•1 lb hamburger, cooked & crumbled
•1 lb. bacon,  cooked & diced
•2 cans baked beans
•1 can kidney beans, rinsed & drained
•1 can butter or great northern beans, rinsed & drained
•brown sugar
•1 medium onion, diced
•salt & pepper

- Combine all ingredients in crock pot using desired amounts of ketchup & brown sugar.
- Cook on low for 6-8 hrs. or high for 4-6 hrs.
- Best served with crusty bread.
