I often change the variety of beans in this classic recipe, using whatever I have on hand to total five 15- to 16-ounce cans. The sauce makes any combination delicious! It's a gluten-free side dish that's popular with everyone. —Peggy Gwillim, Strasbourg, Saskatchewan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 7, 2015

"I've been making these for years. I add cooked ground beef & I double the sauce (2 cups ketchup, 2 cups brown sugar & 1/4 c of vinegar). Always bring home an empty crockpot :)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 2, 2015

"I'm surprised that this bean dish got such high reviews, because I thought it was rather bland. I think that maybe substituting barbecue sauce for the ketchup would punch up the flavor, but I won't be making them again. It was an attractive dish, with the color from the peppers and corn, but was really lacking in flavor. Not bad- just bland."

"I'm not sure how I liked this as a side dish, but (as another reviewer suggested) it was great with fritos! i can see how it would be a great hot dog topping as well."
