This is a simple yet amazing recipe that my mother-in-law made up and gave me that is named after my hubby's friend in High School who was OBSESSED with it. The best part about this one is you can feed a hugeee crowd incredibly easy! :)

How to Make Dusty's Dinner


  • 1Saute the turkey or beef along with the chopped up onions until the meat is no longer pink then, drain the meat of the fat.
  • 2Drain the beans of some of the excess juice it comes with and dump them into the meat and stir around
  • 3Once those have heated up a little add the container of bbq sauce. Stir it all up and slowly bring it up to a boil
  • 4Once it's all hot layer the bottom of a bowl or a plate with a handful or two of Frito's then dump that delicious mess right on-top. Finish with the shredded cheese and enjoy!
  • 5However the best part of this dish is there are a LOT of ways you can mess around with it and make it have a million diff flavors every time. Such as using diff flavors or Baked Beans and BBQ Sauce. Also adding in a few spices and flavors at the end, My hubs is partial to adding in some Worshteshire Sauce (just a teaspoon give or take) and some Garlic Powder!! You can also double the recipe really easy and it's usually my Go-To meal when I have a bunch of the hubs Marine boys over for dinner! Hope you guys like it - and a special thanks to my awesome mother in law for the recipe :)
