1 lb ground sausage (I used Jimmy Dean original) 1 lb ground turkey (or ground beef) 1 medium onion, diced 1 large green pepper, diced 2 cans baked beans (I used Bush’s original beans. One can was 28oz and the other was 16oz) 1 can (15 oz) red kidney beans 5 or 6 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
Brown the ground meat on the stove, and drain. Saute the green pepper and onion in a separate pan. Drain and rinse the kidney beans in a strainer. Add the meat, green peppers, onions, drained kidney beans, crumbled bacon, and the baked beans to a large pot on the stove on medium heat for about 15 minutes, or until warm enough to your liking. Serve and enjoy! A couple of notes:
- If I make this just for Husband and me, I use only 1 lb ground sausage. I threw in the ground turkey this time because I wanted to make a larger batch for the potluck. Also, if it’s just for us, I use the smaller cans of the baked beans. - The original recipe called for sliced kielbasa, which would be tasty as well. - You can throw in any other type of beans you like – pinto, black, or northern beans would probably taste just as good.
