    sacredmama's Note:

    Many of my friends say this is their favorite dish of mine. I think the key is the bacon. I like it at the high end of the spices and more salt seems to bring out the flavors. Sometimes I add celery, red or green pepper, corn, or peas; but add another can of tomatoes if you add more of anything. It always comes out different so sometimes I add shredded cheese. Good with corn bread!

      Oh yes it's the bacon that makes it so good and different. When I put it together I thought, "Oh no there won't be enough liquid." But it was fine as it cooked at a very low heat all the juices came out of the tomatoes and it was perfect. Next time I'm gonna try it with pinto beans.
