Start here, with these flavored beans, and then get creative with your own soup ideas.
The ultimate meat and potatoes meal; and it only needs one pan.
This recipe takes a little work, but it's worth it for the smoky flavor of the ham combined with the sweetness of the apples.
This is some serious man food...none of that prissy sauces and baking crap! Read the entire recipe and prepare EVERYTHING beforehand. Once you start frying, you can't stop and you have to move fast. Also, you'll need a large (12-inch) skillet for all this, otherwise you'll have to do it in batches
Slow cooker recipe. Great comfort food. Beans, meat and plenty of natural spice. Serves as a main or side dish. Great for family gathering.
