This recipe was the winning recipe in the "ONE POT COOK OFF" at the Northside Farmers Market in October, 2008. An extremely simple and lucky recipe. The organizer of the contest (me) was, short cooks needed for a successful event, so I cooked. Knowing I was very short of time, during the cook off, and had some meat in my freezer to eventually make some Roadkill Chili, this recipe was born. Using my 14" cast iron Dutch Oven, everything got thrown into the pot and see what happens. The other ingredients came from a similar recipe for baked beans over a campfire. Damn, I won the contest. So sorry-really not very appropiate for the cook off organizer to win the cook off! However it did showcase some of our market vendors products. Heck with the appropiate behavior!-I'M COOKIN' AGAIN NEXT YEAR.
