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

Made this recipe for a cookout. I left out the corn and Lima beans, added an extra can beans. It was a hit, virtually no leftovers. Sweeter than I expected, but very good. Will add a jalepeno next time. It was a great side dish, and I found many people using it as a hotdog topping.

Great recipe. Took to a family gathering and everyone loved it, even the kids. Simple and delicious and it all fit into my 5-quart Crockpot.

I made this dish for a Father's Day cookout and it was a hit. Loved the sweet, tangy taste of the sauce. Followed the recipe to a "T" with the exception of using pinto beans and cannellini beans in place of black-eyed peas and great northern beans, as I did not have them on hand. This makes alot so it is great for a get together.
