I forgot to say you can add onions if you like them--my kids dont!

RE: Cowboy Beans

Thanks for posting this. I made them last night and they were great. My dh really like them. Plenty to warm up today since it's going to be chili. I made enough to freeze too. Thanks again. Deb_NE

RE: Cowboy Beans

Hate to sound stupid but what are butter beans?

This sounds really good.


RE: Cowboy Beans

I tried this a couple of weeks ago without the bacon and it was great! It should be even better with the bacon!! Thanks for sharing!

RE: Cowboy Beans

It is a good recipe, and if you add a can of crushed pineapple you have "Calico Beans"

RE: Cowboy Beans

Darlene, Butter Beans are the same as Lima Beans. Ann
