2.5 tbsp District Spice Memphis BBQ blend
2 cups mixed beans (black beans and navy work great)
3 strips bacon
1 bottle beer
1 small can tomato paste
1.5 lb ground meat (beef or turkey)
1 diced white onion
1 tbsp molasses (optional)
Cook the bacon, saving the grease in pan. Chop bacon and set aside.
Caramelize onions in the bacon fat. Add ground meat and brown. Add to a pot when finished.
Add beans, bacon, tomato paste, molasses, Memphis BBQ blend, and beer to pot. Simmer on low for 20-30 minutes and serve hot.
