From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. One of the first Indian recipes adopted by the colonists was a mixture of boiled beans and corn sweetened with the fat of the bear. The natives called it m'sick-quotash, but to the English it became simply succotash.
1/3 cup julienne strips of bacon
Slowly cook the strips of bacon in a large, heavy skillet. Add chopped onion and saute until onion is golden. Add roasted pepper, beans, corn and the water. Simmer, covered, until vegetables are tender, about 8 -10 minutes.
