When my husband got married, I could not cook very much. I searched cookbooks for recipes. I have been fixing this recipe for 32 years now. Our family has enjoyed it through the years. We call it Texas Skillet Dinner. I replace the kidney beans with with chili beans and serve over fritoes, with a salad on the side. So good!

In SA , we do not eat kidney beans. Those are Yankee beans. We eat pintos and we do eat rice. I love Spanish rice. No Black beans for a true Texan. Read your TX. Ranger history.

I have been making it for 60 years, except I don't put in beans and I use elbow macaroni instead of rice. In Texas we are not very big on rice. I call mine, Slumgullion. Slumgullion is a name for anything that dopesn't have a name.LOl. They serve it in school cafeterias, and call it Texas Goulosh. I NEVER leave out the chili powder. I prefer Mexene brand. Everyone I have ever served this to loves it. It is a big hit with children. When I want to make a one dish meal of it, I add frozen corn. If you use canned corn, use the juice from the corn as part of the liquid. I sometimes use tomato sauce or tomato paste. REAL quick and real good meal for when you are in a hurry.

Hello dragonmum, No that won't change the time. Thanks for commenting!

Does it change the cooking time to leave the beans out? Nobody in my house will eat beans in their chili. lol
