Ground Beef and Kidney Beans
This "almost chili" was a regular and well-liked dish growing up in the Gray household. We called it Ground Beef and Kidney beans; Mom thought of it as Betty's beans, having gotten the recipe from her sister Betty. Our cousins - Betty's children - know this as "Mother's Beans." Cornbread really should be made to go with this.
  1. Melt butter and saute the onion and mushrooms. Add the soup, beans and bell peppers. Season with salt, paprika, worcestershire sauce,chile powder and herbs. Simmer about a half an hour.
  2. Serve with cornbread.
