Indian Territory Beans

Comment on this recipe

I concocted this casserole while living in the Southwest U.S.

Ingredients

16-ounce bag red or kidney beans
12 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 pound lean ground beef
1 large green pepper
1 large yellow onion
8 ounces of your favorite brand of salsa

Instructions

Clean, rinse and sort beans, then place them in a 3- or 4-quart heavy-duty pot and allow to soak overnight in three inches of cold water. After soaking, place the beans over medium heat and bring to a boil. Allow them to simmer for one hour, being careful to stir them frequently. Add salt and pepper to taste. While beans simmer, brown the ground beef in a skillet. Dice onion and pepper. When beans have cooked for one hour, pour them into a large mixing bowl and blend in the ground beef, onion, pepper, cheese and salsa. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour the mixed ingredients into a well-greased 9x12-inch casserole dish and bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown on top. Makes 12 servings.

1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
