Baked Bean Tinfoil Stew
I make things that I’ve made up all the time and it’s different every time because I never write down exactly what I do. So when I write a “recipe” it is just a guess at the amounts I used. Feel free to change it to your taste or to make more or less for a different number of people. I made three large tinfoil packets with this for my husband and I and the two girls. We ended up having some leftovers.
- Ground beef- 1 lb
- Baked beans- large can or 1 cans
- Black beans- 1 can
- Navy beans- 1 can
- Onion- one, diced
- Ketchup- about 3/4 cup
- Smoked paprika or liquid smoke- about 1 tsp
- Worcestershire sauce- about 2 tbsp
- Cider vinegar- optional- about 1 tsp
- Bacon- optional- dice up maybe 6 strips and put it on the bottom of the tin foil to make sure it gets cooked through
I split the ground beef into thirds and tear it up into small pieces so that it is not just a blob that we have to cut up later. Dice an onion and add that to the tinfoil with some of each of the beans. Mix a bunch of ketchup with a little worcestershire sauce, cider vinegar and smoked paprika (or liquid smoke) and mix that in. I just poured mine on top but it’s pretty thick and sticky and stuck to the tinfoil a bit so mixing it in would help. Does not have to cook as long as something with potatoes or other hard veggies- just make sure the beef is done. Enjoy! Yummy to eat with fritos or corn bread muffins or with a dollop of sour cream.
