Rounding up the gang for dinner is a breeze when these are on the menu. Barbecue sauce and spicy chili beans bring a taste of the ol’ West to your home on the range.
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
small onion, chopped (about 1/3 cup)
cup barbecue sauce
can (15 oz) spicy chili beans, undrained
sandwich buns, split
cup shredded Cheddar cheese (3 oz)
In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
Stir in barbecue sauce and chili beans. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened.
Spoon mixture onto bottoms of buns; sprinkle with cheese. Top with tops of buns.
To make ahead, cook the barbecue mixture, and let cool for 30 minutes. Refrigerate up to 4 days. To reheat, bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Serve with slices of fresh watermelon.
