Tastes Like Vintage: Chuckwagon Bean Bake 9

This week’s Tastes Like Vintage post is from Carissa, Carpebellus.

Fall brings campfires and campfires bring…COWBOYS!

I know this is a bit of a stretch but I wanted to share this simple, rustic family dish for all the upcoming potlucks. My Dad who is a huge John Wayne fan loves this Chuckwagon Bean Bake recipe that was passed down from my Grandma. Makes a good amount, enough to satisfy all your cowboy and cowgirl friends!

For all you searchers of “rusty gold”, happy trails and remember this bit of western wisdom, “Only a fool argues with the cook.”
