  • 1/2 pound bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1  pound ground beef or bulk pork sausage
  • 1 can (14.8 ounces) Campbell's® Pork & Beans
  • 2 cans (about 15 ounces each) butter beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard


  • Step 1

    Set the oven to 350°F.  Cook the bacon in batches in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove the bacon from the skillet and drain on paper towels. Remove all but 2 tablespoons drippings from the skillet.

    Add the beef and onion to the skillet and cook until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.  Stir in the pork and beans, lima beans, brown sugar, picante sauce, ketchup and mustard.  Season to taste.  Spoon the beef mixture into a 3-quart casserole. Top with the cooked bacon.

    Made this over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised that it was a hit with my family. I used hamburg, not sausage and the kick from the tomatoes with chilies was just enough to give this dish the added flavor that it needed.
