Kelemen's Cowboy Beans

These are NOT your momma's "Baked Beans"!! These are not dump out of the can and heat beans. It has taken several years to get to this recipe and your family and friends will be hollering for more. They are crazy easy to make.

How to Make Kelemen's Cowboy Beans


  1. Add all ingredients to a large pot, stir together, bring to a low boil and simmer for about an hour. Stir frequently.
  2. That's it. I don't cook the hamburger before I add it. That's part of the awesome flavor.
