How to Make Cowboy Beans
- Slice bacon into small pieces, brown in a skillet and drain fat. I reserve some of the bacon fat and use it to saute the onions and brown the kielbasa in.
- Brown kielbasa in skillet with small amount of bacon fat. Drain on paper towel and set aside.
Saute the diced onion in a about a tablespoon of bacon fat until soft. Drain on paper towel and set aside.
- Add all ingredients to crock-pot and stir to combine. Cook on low for about 6 hours or until they have thickened.
- Add as much or as little of the jalapeno as you like, or eliminate altogether if not a fan of spicy food.
