"I used precooked bacon and just lightly browned it to have enough fat to saute the onions, garlic. Also used home canned stewed tomato mix - I add green pepper and onion. Initially, I didn't have high hopes for this recipe, but I had all the ingredients on hand, so I tried it and was pleasantly surprised. Try it, you'll like it. Great budget recipe as well."
