Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Sunshine Bean Casserole


2 cup red beans (canned), drained
2 cup lima beans (canned), drained
2 cup garbanzo beans (canned), drained
1 lb beef, ground
1 large onion, chopped fine
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoon mustard, prepared (or less)
1/2 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon cumin powder (optional)
1/4 cup red wine
1 salt and pepper to taste

Put drained beans into a 2 1/2-quart casserole; mix lightly and set aside. In large skillet cook ground beef, onions and garlic until meat is lightly browned; stir in remaining ingredients (except beans). Add skillet mixture to beans in casserole; mix together.
