How to make Southern hobo stew

Print this recipe
This is the recipe that treads the line between “I barely know how to cook” and “incredible memories of summers camping and tailgating.” For me, it’s this -- or hot dog kebabs. The great news is you can make new memories with this dish almost anywhere; it’s so easy and requires so few ingredients and dishes, you can almost always bring it along.
The key here is simple: Start cooking 10 minutes after everyone says they’re really hungry. Then throw everything into a pot and heat it over a stove, campfire or barbecue. Bonus: You won’t have any dishes to do because everyone will have licked them clean!

4 medium potatoes
1 lb ground beef

Boil the potatoes in water for 15 minutes. Peel and chop them into cubes.

Add the baked beans, the whole can of tomatoes and the potatoes. Add a little bit of water if there isn't enough liquid.
Cook on that same high flame for 15-20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
