    This is a good dish which can be made with many variations. For those that are wondering, Ranch Style Brand Beans are made by a company called ConAgra. They are pinto beans with a very light spicy sauce added to them.  -  04 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made something like this for years and years. I brown the ground beef then add a can of Campbells Tomato soup (its the best flavor 1 tsp. oragano,1/2 tsp. basil, 2 bay leaves, 1/8 tsp. pepper and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cook for about five minutes to thicken a bit then add veggie of choice I like the beans,but my recipe was peas or carrots, and sometimes corn. I serve it over mashed potatoes and sometimes rice.  -  11 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Quick, easy, inexpensive and delicious! My four favorite words for dinner. My nephew and his buddy stopped by just about dinner time the other night. OH NO, I'm thinking...two really healthy appetites! Instead of wondering if I had enough food for everyone, I just thawed 2# of ground beef in the microwave and finished this meal on the stove. I added a tablespoon and a half of Taco Seasoning from this site to kick it up a notch. Both guys loved it, and the best part, I knew they didn't go away hungry. Very Quick, Very Easy, and Very Delicious.Thanks Hallie!  -  27 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
