Oh! What a beautiful dinner! Oh! What a beautiful meal! It's a dish with a Mexican-sounding name and a truly American flavor all its own. Another thing about it that should make you smile if you've decided to try it - three or four members of any Patrol can cook it. Let's begin.

Ingredients (Plenty for 8 or 9 Scouts) 

bullet 4 strips of bacon (cut very fine)
bullet3 large onions (cut very fine)
bullet3 #2 cans of red kidney beans
bullet3 cans of tomato soup
bullet1 lb. of hamburger
bullet1/2 teaspoonful of salt, few dashes of pepper

Let's operate on the hamburger first. Flatten it to the thickness of 1/2 inch, shape it into a rectangle or square, then out with your Scout knife and score the meat into 1/2-inch strips, in both directions, run the knife down through the strips, separate them and the 1/2" meat cubes are ready.

Fry the bacon, slide in the onions (both cut very fine) and fry them to a very dark brown. Just before they reach this handsome color slide the meat cubes into the pan, keep turning them till the outside surfaces are browned. Open up the cans and you're ready for the grand reunion of all the ingredients. All the beans, the tomato soup, the pepper, the salt are placed in a dish with the bacon, the meat, the onions. Does that smell good! But bring out your patience, you must wait for it to cook about 6 or 8 minutes to meld all those flavors you dropped into the dish. That's all, except hurry up and see that you get your share.
