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.
