1 can (16 ounces) stewed tomatoes
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Fry bacon until crip: drain on paper towels. Cook and stir hamburger and onion in 10-inch skillet until hamburger is light brown: drain. Stir in bacon and remaining ingredients.

Believe it or not we did not have an onion in the house, but I used a quart of my home canned stewed tomatoes which have quite a few onions in them. This was really good and I would think some might put it in the comfort food category. And the house still smells good too.
I want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for my husbands broken collar bone and the surgery he had on Monday. It was very broken up and it took about 1 1/2 hours for the orthopedic surgeon to put it back together but the surgeon believes it will mend well now. Thanks for stopping by I hope everyone is having a good week.
