-1 Ib. Ground Beef
-16 oz. Original Cheese
-1 Onion
-1 Red Bell Pepper
-1 Orange Bell Pepper
-2 Cans diced tomatoes with chiles
-1 Can diced tomatoes
-1 Can pinto beans
-1 Can black beans

-Recommended wood: Jack Daniels chips, Hickory, Mesquite or Pecan.


Set your grill up for indirect heat with the temp at 275-300*.

Season the ground beef generously with the Shellback seasoning and pepper.

Use a cast iron or throw away tin pan to cook the meat. I started with the pan at the midpoint of the grill (not directly over the coals but not completely away from the coals either).

Cook the meat until done (about 20-25 minutes) stirring every 10 minutes.

Then place your pan directly over the coals for 5 minutes to allow the meat to crispen up a bit.

While the meat is cooking, cut up the vegetables and drain/rinse the beans.

Move the pan away from the coals now for indirect grilling and add the onion, peppers, beans and tomatoes.

Let these cook for 10 minutes getting a little kiss of smoke. 

While the veggies are cooking, cut the brick of cheese into 1 inch cubes. Add them to the pan and stir every 15 minutes (plan for indirect grilling for about 45 minutes).

Grab a bag of your favorite chips and enjoy!
