CowBoy Beans

Eileen Hineline


I love most beans. My friend Amber told me about cowboy beans and I was like, what? She said her dad makes the best cowboy beans ever and I had to try them. She brought in a huge bowl for us to try at work. She said once I tasted them I'd fall in love with them and want the recipe.
The co-workers(also friends)at our table all took a small amount as we never had them, I ended up having seconds!
She asked if anyone wanted some to take home because she didn't want to take them home and I did.
I heated them up again on my days off and enjoyed them with a hamburger, so darn good.
