Sweet barbeque beans loaded with bacon and ground beef and a surprisingly sweet flavor. The taste of these beans is to die for!

Simple Turkey Chili

This is a very simple and hearty chili with plenty of flavor. It's even better the second day! I serve this with lowfat Cheddar cheese and lowfat sour cream. It's also delicious with crackers.

Richard and Suzanne's Famous Red Beans and Sausage

Rating: 4.5 stars 18
This recipe was created by Richard during his single days. It became a family favorite over the years. He gets many requests for this recipe so we decided just to make it public. If you don't like spicy food, use mild sausage and omit the red pepper flakes. Hope you enjoy! Serve over white rice with corn bread and coleslaw for a delicious meal.

Honey Bean Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 24
This is SO delicious! I put this together after an x-ray because I wanted to eat something high in antioxidants and honey (for its antibacterial properties). What I ended up was a salad SO tasty, I just had to share it here. I'm sure that even the pickiest bean hating eater will love this dish! This is my new favorite and I can't wait to go and make some more!

Filling, flavorful and easy to make, this New Orleans-style dish is a Monday night tradition in Louisiana. And the addition of smoked turkey sausage makes it perfect as a delicious meal all by itself, or as a robust side.

Just Like Wendy's® Chili

After trying several clone recipes and adjusting them to my tastes, I've concocted what I think is the best clone. Serve topped with finely diced white onions and/or shredded cheese. Enjoy!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Rating: 4.5 stars 2786
Once you've had one, you'll want another. The recipe is a little different from most burrito recipes, but I've had many, many requests for it. Serve these with sour cream, chopped green onions, and salsa.
