Partytime Beans Recipe

Publisher Photo
A friend brought this colorful bean dish to my house for a church circle potluck dinner. As soon as I tasted these slightly sweet baked beans, I had to have the recipe. I've served this and shared the recipe many times since. -Jean Cantner, Boston, Virginia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 6, 2013

"We were underwhelmed with this recipe. We didn't like the green pepper and weren't thrilled with the black-eyed peas. I added another 1/2 cup of sugar to try to cut some of the vinegar taste. Apparently we're in the minority since most other reviewers loved these beans."

"Yummmm - wonderful. My high-end food store didn't sell canned lima beans, so I substituted chili beans, added another can of blackeyed peas & omitted the red & green bell peppers, but put in a red bell pepper seasoning. I followed some cook's advice by adding the turkey bacon."
