This delicious recipe can be prepared stove top, in the oven, on a BBQ grill, in the crock pot, or over the lowest part of a campfire. The original recipe came from a Marlboro booklet called The Original Cook Like a Man Cookbook. It also called for 2 cups smoked ham, chopped, and was a one-pot meal for camping. We prefer it as a side dish without the ham, and make it on the stove or in the oven, too. My son is the one who introduced me to it. This recipe represents typical cowboy cuisine of the Southwestern U.S.
