Need Recipe for Beans

Post by SuzyQcsu » Wed Nov 26, 2008 5:16 am

I have pinto, canned black and canned red kidney beans. I have never really cooked with beans before. Any ideas - besides bean dip. :lol:

I have one for baked beans.

Open can of Bushes Homestyle Baked Beans.
Pour into large pot.
Add barbeque sauce to taste.
Heat on stove until warm, stirring occasionally to prevent beans from sticking to pot.
Serve warm.

Enjoy!

3 different Beans, all Canned?
Here’s a few ideas. Best to tell us your preferences and we'll get lots of recipes.

* Off the top you can make a 3 Bean Salad especially if they're all canned.
* New England Baked Beans or Cowboy Beans with Chilies
* Make a Three Bean Chili or with Black Beans, Black Bean Chili with Pork
* Black Bean Soup with Sausage Or Black Bean Soup Southwestern style
* Italian Sausage & Bean Stew, Ham and Bean Soup, Senate Bean Soup,
* Pasta e Fagioli (an Italian thick soup with Beans, Veggies, and Pasta)
* Lamb with Sausage & Beans
* Mixed Bean Cassoulet, adding preference of Sausage, Lamb, Duck...whatever.
