bacon ranch beans
I was looking in my pantry several weeks ago and thought what if I mixed corn and beans and bacon and Rotel and Ranch dressing...would that be good? Days went by, and the thought never left my head. I just had to try it!
The conclusion...yes, yes, YES, they do go together. They go together very well. So well I had to share it with you!
This recipe starts with a half pound of bacon. Dice it up and cook in a large skillet until it reaches your desired crispiness.
Add a cup of frozen corn (no need to thaw first) and some sliced green onions. Cook and stir for a few minutes until the corn is heated through.
Add a can of Rotel and a packet of Ranch dressing mix. Stir until well combined.
Finally, add three cans of beans. They can be any kind of beans - your pick! I used black, navy, and kidney, and we loved the mixture of flavors and textures.
Cook and stir over medium heat until the beans are heated through. Serve and enjoy!
