My mother was the director of a day care in the early 1970's and this is a recipe she made for the children. I still make and we love it.

  • salt & pepper, to taste

Instead of ranch style beans, I used a can of pinto beans (which I drained first). Also, we added more spice to taste (chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder) and some shakes of Worcestershire. It was pretty good for being such a basic, last-minute type dinner for us!
