Cowboy Food

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Phoenix Food Queen

Growing up extremely poor and living in the Midwest, my mother had to get creative with a family of a military husband, 5 sons and 4 daughters. She dubbed this "Cowboy Food". I still love this to this day! Maybe it's just that it's so comforting to me!

I was born in the 50's & also grew up in a military home.Our family had this same food several times a week but we called it "Daddy's Beans".I still make it a couple of times a month-still like it too!
