Growing up in Texas we had a lot of "beans and taters" and my mama would make this with the leftovers. She called it Bean Ghoulash, originally made with leftover pinto beans, tomatoes and seasonings with meat. This is a much quicker method. Some people call it chili but it is different. I love it and every member of my family loves it.
