Recipe: Robio’s Skillet Not-Quite-Chili

Robio's Skillet Not-Quite-ChiliTonight I was feeling a bit lazy.  I knew I had hamburger thawed and bacon in the fridge, so while I was at the grocery store, I picked up the corn, one of the cans of beans, and some onions.
The Ingredients
Ground Beef, about a pound
Bacon (about 5 strips – I used thick cut, maple cured)
1 can petite diced tomatoes
2 cans baked beans
1 can whole kernal corn
1 medium vidalia onion
1/2 bottle of Barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory and Brown Sugar)
black pepper
Prep and Cooking
1. Dice the bacon into small pieces
2. Brown beef and bacon in skillet, adding a little black pepper
3. After the beef and bacon are nearly browned, add the chopped onion
4. When the beef and bacon have finished browning, drain the grease, then add the barbecue sauce
5. Let this cook for a few minutes before adding the cans of beans and the drained cans of corn and tomatoes
6. Cook until the mixture is hot throughout
**This really is one of my lazy dinners.  Only two items require chopping, it is all cooked in one skillet, and it doesn’t require much cleanup.
