Chuckwagon Wraps

In yesterday's post, I mentioned we are incorporating more legumes into our diets. This recipe is one that I have used for awhile with excellent results. The meal is also very quick and easy to put together and serve. The bonus for my family is that we eat it with tortillas. They will eat just about anything when tortillas are involved.

The legume involved is the fast and easy kind - a small can of baked beans. I usually use Bush's because I like the taste of theirs better than the thin tomato-y sauce kind. This recipe would work fabulously too if you have leftover homemade baked beans.

I also apologize in advance if this similar to anyone's recipe. I have been making these for about twelve years and have lost the original recipe or where the recipe came from. 

Chuckwagon Wraps

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped or  1 Tablespoon dried chopped onion
1 16.5 oz. can of baked beans
1 cup of frozen or canned corn (I prefer frozen sweet corn)
1-2 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
Chili powder or hot sauce to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Tortillas, shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, etc.

1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef and onion together until beef is done. Drain if necessary.

2. Add can of baked beans and corn to skillet with beef. Stir together.

3. Add Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and seasoning to the mixture in the skillet. Let simmer on low for 5-10 minutes.

4. Serve with warmed tortillas and whatever condiments you like. Enjoy!

My kids only need tortillas, shredded cheese, and sour cream to eat these. When I pointed out they needed vegies, they pointed at the corn. Point taken.

This will serve 4-5 people without side dishes. With side dishes, this could serve 5-6 people or more. They are filling and absolutely wonderful leftover for the next day too.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!


  1. Except that corn is a grain, not a vegetable! Broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, cabbage, Romaine lettuce, and onions are vegetables, but corn is a grain (used to be called a starch). I really like to add shredded Romaine lettuce to burritos and wraps, also chopped bell peppers (green, red, yellow) and onions. These wraps sound really yummy, we'll give them a try. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I know it is a grain too, but it's just not worth arguing over. They have always associated corn as a vegie and I stopped correcting them sometime ago. Most of my kids have just started to like lettuce in the last year or so. I haven't pushed them on eating it with this recipe yet. Thanks!

  2. Just got done copying this recipe and plan on going to Hyvee to get ingred. today. Thanks for providing something kind of new and different.

10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month

As crazy as it seems, some people make prepping harder than it has to be. Learning skills can be hard, but the end rewards are so worth it. The work can be hard, but the pay off is that jobs get done and you have accomplished something for the future. However...preppers still need stuff. We can produce a lot of our own things and survive just fine. We still need the items that will make survival easier now and, heaven forbid, if anything bad happens. We need things to keep our lifestyle simpler and easier if something happens. Over the eight years or so that I have been prepping, I have some things that I buy almost every month. Some months when the budget is tight, I might not purchase any of these. Then I appreciate having these things on hand! Below is my list of things I buy every month. I don't make one big trip and buy all these things in one trip. I add them to my cart at the grocery store, department store, online shopping, and whatnot. I spend a little bit every s

New preppers wonder what they should be buying for their preps every month. More experienced preppers wonder what holes they should be plugging in their food storage to be better prepared.
