Not Beanie Weenies – Egg-Free, Nut-Free, Under 30 Minutes, One Pot
- 1 Tablespoon lard or fat of choice
- ½ onion, diced
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
- 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 Tablespoons blackstrap molasses (optional)
- 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
- ½ cup water
- 3 uncured hot dogs, sliced
- In large saucepan, melt the lard over medium heat. Add the onion and sweet potato, and sauté for 7 to 10 minutes or until the onion is translucent and the sweet potato begins to soften.
- Add the salt, tomato paste, and molasses, if using, and stir for 3 minutes. The result at this point will be a thick sauce.
- Pour in the tomatoes with their juices and water and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes until the “bean” sauce thickens the sweet potatoes are tender.
- Add the hot dog slices and cook for 5 minutes, until heated through. Spoon into bowls and serve. This dish keeps well chilled and reheats perfectly for lunches all week long.
