Recipe by Aurora
I grew up in North Idaho in a town of 20 people. I lived with three loggers who loved their food, loved lots of food, and loved it thick and filling. This fit the bill perfectly, especially when served with grilled steak or chicken and IDAHO potato salad!
- 1 lb hamburger
- 1 package bacon
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon liquid smoke (very necessary for true smoky Idaho flavor)
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar

- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can red kidney beans, rinse and drain
