This mixture of beef and beans is well-seasoned and makes a great everyday family dinner. With a biscuit topping, it's a complete meal in one dish.
Add coleslaw, green salad, or steamed broccoli for a tasty family dinner any night of the week.
I cook about 1/2 cup of chopped onion with the ground beef and add a little onion powder for extra flavor.
